PRORAGIS (Park and Recreation Operating Ratio & Geographic Information System) is a national database that allows park and recreation agencies to benchmark with others, develop program planning, and enhance overall community operations.
PRORAGIS is an online database that collects, compiles, and reports data related to park and recreation departments’ operating and geographic information. This page, PRORAGIS 101, is intended to walk you through the steps of submitting your PRORAGIS profile - both survey and GIS data. NRPA hopes the instructions lead you to completing your agency's profile quickly and efficiently.
Go to www.nrpa.org/proragis and click on the blue PRORAGIS login button.
Notice the “Participation Status” table toward the end of the page that certifies the number of complete profile sections. You may wish to refer to this table while completing your profile to confirm sections are being saved.
On the “Profile Management” page, you must select a year for data entry; then click on "Go to Profile." (If your fiscal year is not on calendar year, please hover over the question mark icon by "fiscal year" and it will provide instructions.)
Gathering all of your agency's survey data may take some time to complete. As much of the data may not change significantly from year to year, when you begin to enter for data for subsequent years, you can use the COPY function on the “Profile Management” tab to copy data from one year to the next as a starting point. You may also ADD USERS to give additional users access to your PRORAGIS account.
