The Technical Advisory Group works to assist in the communication and exchange of information between groups, and to bridge the internal capacity and mandates of other Coalition-SGSL working groups. The group determined that a more practical and useful tool would be to develop a specifications document of existing portals, sources of GIS information, data, and so on, so as to avoid duplication and assist member groups with their mapping efforts.

In fiscal year 2007-2008 the group was key in helping the Coalition-SGSL create the Regional Sustainability Atlas. The objective of this work is to help network the members by using a visual geographic data sharing tool that can be easily used by everyone and is freely accessible through Google Earth. Key components that the group would like to see flourish on the Atlas are land use, aquatic resources, NGO and socio-economic activities and issues...all of this to facilitate Integrated Planning and Management. Currently, the Atlas is home to several years of data for the Community Aquatic Monitoring Program (CAMP)
