In celebration of International GIS Day, Pierce County is launching a free new site that makes it easy to research census data, zoning, local parks, property parcels, and more! The new Open Geospatial Data Portal makes the County’s GIS data widely available to the public. Users can choose from categories such as census data or places of interest, search for specific topics, filter for desired data, and view data on the interactive map. Best of all, this data can be shared or saved as a spreadsheet, KML file for Google Maps, or shapefile.
Pierce County is dedicated to increasing access to government data. The new portal will help increase economic development, improve everyday decision-making, and enhance educational opportunities for County residents. Pierce County is launching this new open data site in conjunction with International GIS Day, a celebration of geospatial technology and its power to better lives.
