By Matthew Viverito, GIS Analyst

Interested in finding maps of the city? How about data? Do you know where to look or who to contact?

The Department of Public Works (DPW) Geographic Information System (GIS) maps and data are available for the public to view and download. Visit the DPW’s mapping page to find maps and GIS data. Learn about:

  • Map gallery: Users can view interactive maps and download PDF's for printing. Users will find a variety of maps including street maps, CIP application, and impervious surface lookup application.
  • Open Maps Page: Users can download free City GIS data layers. Users can download the data in a variety of formats.
  • Impervious Surface Mapping Application: Users can easily lookup the impervious fee information for their property. Users will find helpful links and a tool to print an impervious surface map.
  • Real Estate Assessment Information Database web application: Users can find tools to lookup property tax assessments. Included is a mapping tool to view the City GIS data layers and create customized maps.
  • Information for upcoming GIS-related Events: Users can review upcoming GIS events and opportunities (e.g. data collection events). Each November GIS Day is celebrated, and the GIS Analyst hosts an open house at City Hall. The public is invited to discuss how DPW is using GIS, to learn about mapping technologies, view the City map gallery, or to simply share ideas.

Please visit the Department of Public Works mapping page often to view updates to our maps, data, and events. For further information about the City’s mapping program, please feel free to call Matt Viverito at 703-248-5328 (TTY 711).
