Data, Maps, and Reports

GIS Data Services

CAPCOG offers a variety of GIS data useful for mapping and spatial analysis purposes. The three main types of data include:

Capital Area Orthoimagery Project

Orthoimagery, LiDAR, and more

In participation with various cities, counties and other agencies, CAPCOG annually acquires aerial imagery for the region in a cost-sharing cooperative agreement. Other data such as LiDAR and planimetrics are periodically updated for some areas in the region, as well. Most data is licensed for the first two years of existence, and then placed in the public domain. Some exceptions exist which necessitate the data be in the public domain from inception.

Free Maps & Data

CAPCOG Free Regional Data

CAPCOG Free Regional Data is an interactive-map website that increases accessibility to free regional information and makes the data easily downloadable. The creation of the website has further enhanced the GIS Program’s ability to be a single resource of regional geographic information.

Hosted by ArcGIS Online, the site allows users to visually review numerous datasets before downloading the information for their own use. Currently available datasets include items such as city limits; floodplain boundaries; school district boundaries; the location of airports and parks; and archived street centerlines. Parcel boundaries also are available by county.

CAPCOG has generated a number of datasets located on the website, but it also has collected and compiled datasets from other entities. Some data placed on the website has more up-to-date counterparts such address points and street centerlines, which are packaged with the purchase of the CAAR Map database.
