Phila.gov/map is the home of the City of Philadelphia’s new mapping website which brings together much of the City’s spatial data.  This site, launched in August of 2012, features datasets from numerous departments, including Licenses and Inspections, Planning, Streets, Water, Police and Parks and Recreation.

The Office of Innovation and Technology’s GIS Services Group is very excited to announce the addition of 4 new datasets on Phila.gov/map.
