Geographic Information System (GIS)

The Geographic Information System (GIS) section supports City of Worcester departments and divisions by assisting users, consulting on projects and providing access to GIS data. Assessing, Fire, Public Works, Election Commission and Inspectional Services are some of the offices directly served. In addition, applications which integrate with the GIS, such as ViewPermit, Customer Service Request System, Property Analysis, Pavement Management and CrimeView, have been implemented.

The public has access to GIS maps and data in a variety of ways.

Maps available on the City Website to view, download or print include:
