Online Mapping Tools


A growing number of online mapping tools provide easy access to many kinds of information about the District of Columbia. Some have been developed by our own staff to help answer specific sorts of questions, others are general-purpose tools provided by the Office of the Chief Technology Officer, and still more are popular commercial products. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but highlights some of the sites we use in our own work:

  • PropertyQuest.dc.gov is the best tool for understanding what DC sites are historic, but also handy for everything from Ward, ANC, SMD and property tax information to Census tract information and Google StreetView imagery. PropertyQuest is a product of the Office of Planning.
  • Walk.dc.gov is another Office of Planning product and highlights neighborhood walkability issues. A popular commercial site that does this beyond the District is walkscore.org.
  • Online Mapping tools from Office of the Chief Technology Officer, including DC Atlas Plus.
  • Official Zoning Map information can be found at dcoz.dc.gov/info/map.shtml, provided by the Office of Zoning.
  • The National Map is a product of the US Geological Survey.
  • Google Maps and Bing Maps are also examples of popular commercial mapping sites.
  • Google Earth is a popular 3D map viewer. Recent versions can display 3D buildings for DC.
