MAPS AND DATA
Welcome to the Arlington County Maps and Data web site. Compiled here are the links to data and maps of Arlington County, including a wide variety of population, housing, land use, and geographic information about the County.
Interactive Mapping Tools
We have available a set of simple interactive mapping tools to access our GIS data layers. They can be found at the following link <click here>.
Our ACMap tool has more data than the simple viewers in the map gallery all in one application.. Please see the ACMaps page for details.
We are replacing the tool we have been using for our primary interactive maps site (ACMaps). The new ACMaps site will be fully available sometime in January. In the meantime you are welcome to take it for a test drive and provide any feedback. (ACMaps - Draft) (There's a feedback button in the applicaiton on the main toolbar.) Not all data has been loaded, it's about 90% complete at this point. There are a few more data layers to add and a few functions to flesh out.
The street names used in our GIS are the most current and official listing of names and spellings. We checked the County records from 1934 (when the board approved new street names) forwards to find any changes and applied those corrections in 1999. We are very confident that our listing is correct according to the County records. The Post Office does not assign street names so they are not the authority. Also if you spot an incorrect spelling on a street sign, please report it.
Remember when using online mapping services, companies may not have the latest street data displayed. Be careful not to mistake the copyright date for the date of currency. If doubts still persist, check Arlington’s GIS Mapping Center’s interactive mapping site which displays Arlington County’s most recent street data.
The Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, analyzing, and displaying geographic data. The following links provide access to many GIS created maps and products. The GIS is utilized by many of the departments within the County and is a useful tool for decision making.
