GIS Resources

  • NYCityMap
    Geographic Information System for New York City. Find the nearest schools, libraries, public safety facilities, visualize municipal boundaries, and link to useful reports and statistics. NYCMap provides a wider variety of information on municipal boundaries -such as police precincts, to cite one example- and on municipal service centers than can be found on another, powerful, NYC GIS, OASIS (also linked on this page).
  • Open Accessible Space Information System (OASIS)
    OASIS is a GIS for NYC produced by a partnership of private and public entities. OASIS is valuable for providing a means of visualizing data on population characteristics, zoning information, and environmental characteristics that are not available on NYCMap.
  • TIGERweb (Beta)
    TIGER is the Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing system from the U.S. Census Bureau. It provides GIS for visualizing U.S. census tracts, blocks, regions, and divisions; school districts; and legislative areas. Demographic data is currently not available in beta.
