Belated Happy New Year from AGRC and a Bon Voyage

2015 was another active, productive year for GIS across Utah, and 2016 seems like more of the same.

As we head off into another year of GIS adventure, it seems only fitting to wish everyone a continued bon voyage, or good journey, from the AGRC staff.

But in particular, we hope that you'll join us in some well-wishing for our own Kelly Green who has relocated for a GIS job in Blaine County Idaho, home of the towns of Sun Valley, Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue, and Carey. We are sad to lose Kelly (starred and clad in an AGRC hoodie in the photo) and will miss her skills, outreach, and dedication, but we know she'll be in a great and valued spot in the Wood River valley. 

UGS Releases New Interactive Fault Map

The Utah Geological Survey has made the Quaternary Fault and Fold Database available through a new interactive web application. The faults and folds in the database are thought to have been the sources of large earthquakes during the Quaternary (most recent) geologic time period. The interactive map's user interface was built using ESRI's JavaScript API. 
End of the Year Municipal Boundary Updates Now Available

The end of year municipal boundary updates were updated in the SGID on January 4, 2016. 2015 saw a total of 78 incorporations, annexations, or adjustments of municipal boundaries in Utah.
