GIS Data Request

Public Requests

*** April 2019 Topo and Imagery now available ***

Upon request and under the City's Open Data terms of usage the City can provide the following mapping data:

  • 1:2000 topographic vector 2-D planimmetry and separate 3-D contours w/spot heights in either 135 2km square AutoCAD DWG tiles or as themed SHP files
  • 10cm pixel digital orthoimagery in "MrSID" file and "SID" world file @1:50 compression
  • Digital elevation model (DEM) in 136 2km Microstation DGN files
  • single line road network in AutoCAD DWG or SHP file format

DWG and SHP files are georeferenced to the City's NAD'83 (Original) datum, UTM projection, Zone 17. Depending on the version ordered, either a program capable of reading AutoCAD 2015 DWG files or ESRI shape files will be required to read the data. The DEM is only available in Microstation DGN format. The digital orthimagery requires the use of a freely available MrSID viewer plugin.

Requests should be made by emailing Geomatics. The data will be delivered by secure email (ftp) transfer.

For information not listed either here or on the City's Open Data site, please submit a data request using this form.
