CGA was named the official GIS Sponsor of RAGBRAI XLVIII in 2021. By working with each local committee, CGA created informative maps to assist the anticipated 10,000+ bike riders with finding resources in all seven host towns. Each map highlights local amenities and campgrounds so all participants have to worry about is biking and having fun!
Information was collected from the local committee by CGA through an interactive mapping web application. This allowed committee members with no GIS or mapping experience to easily mark locations on a web map, saving time and lessening confusion.
By having CGA coordinate and create the local host town maps, RAGBRAI was able to offer a uniform and easy-to-read map that help tie all the local communities together, while allowing them to shine individually.
