Scottsdale's GIS Division offers a limited number of shapefiles for free download. Other files and formats are offered for sale through the City's data sales program.


Sample Data Specifications

Format: Standard shapefile format. Each shapefile includes documentation in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format.

Coordinate System: The City of Scottsdale GIS data is stored in a slightly modified version of Arizona State Plane Zone 3176, NAD83 coordinates known as the Scottsdale City Grid. The units of measure are International Feet. For more detailed information on the differences between the two projections, click here. These files overlay correctly with the City on a Disk image mosaic and individual quarter-section images available for purchase.

Downloading: Files are stored in compressed .zip files to speed the download process. You will need to unzip the files before use. There are a number of Zip/Unzip utilities available for download through the Internet.

Updating: Sample GIS data files are recreated weekly to account for changes to the master files that may have occurred in the previous week. Efforts are made to ensure data accuracy, however, please read the Scottsdale Data Disclaimer at the bottom of this page.
