Welcome to the City of Alexandria's GIS open data site. The GIS team strives to bring together accurate and up to date geographic information in an easy to use format, while increasing the transparency of city government. Here, you will find our open data portal. To view our available data, enter a search term (i.e. "Parcels" or "Parks") and click the magnify glass in the search box at the top of the page. Alternatively, you can search all of our available content by just clicking on the magnify glass without entering a search term. This application will allow you to download the data in ESRI's shapefile (.shp) format, as well as other formats listed below.

Please be aware that the exported data does not keep the Virginia State Plane North, NAD 1983 (US Feet) projection in which we normally maintain our data in, but is converted automatically to WGS84 (Decimal Degrees) by ESRI. This may cause the data to look skewed.

Our Goal

This new site is a work in progress which will continue to evolve. We are always working to continue to add new data sets, improve open data portal usability and will strive to continue to add new and improved content. Please note that this site currently only contains some, but not all, of our available data. To download all of our available data resources, please visit HERE.
