New Maps Offer Better Insight into Neighborhoods

Wonder what the median age is in your neighborhood? Population density? Curious if you are in a historic district? Then check out the city’s new GIS on the Go http://click.portlandmaine.gov/gisportal. The City of Portland’s Geographic Information System (GIS) has launched a new webpage, GIS on the Go, featuring a map gallery of the city with data and information about city parcels, zoning, historic districts, political districts, school districts and various demographics including among others population, diversity, unemployment and median age. With the simple click of a mouse, the public can get a neighborhood by neighborhood or block by block view of the city. The page was developed using the latest technology and contains interactive mapping applications with downloadable PDF maps. The map gallery can also be explored on mobile devices. Depending upon interest from the public, additional maps for other topics could be added.

Portland’s Geographic Information System (GIS) develops and maintains electronic maps and data for use by staff, the general public, state and federal agencies.   The City of Portland’s GIS also provides public service to consultants, developers, general public and other agencies based upon GIS product development, maintenance, and/or analysis.
