User Group

GIS Workshop 11_14_07 072The American Samoa GIS (Geographic Information System) Users group was first convened in February of 2001 as an informal grassroots effort among both public and private entities that have an interest in GIS development in the territory. The primary tenet for the group’s formation was the establishment of a forum for disseminating GIS information for collaboration and funding and decreasing data duplication. The group recognized that in order to make GIS development sustainable in American Samoa, local institutional capacity would need to be strengthened through training and education in Geographic Information Science.
