Online GIS Services

The City of Alexandria’s GIS Emerging Technologies and Advanced Analytics Division maintains several geographic information layers and datasets including addresses, buildings, parcels and roads for use in all City of Alexandria programs and projects as well as collecting GIS data from almost every department in the City of Alexandria. Currently, we do not provide custom maps or other cartographic services to the public; if you are looking for map of the City of Alexandria itself or a specific area/criteria within the City of Alexandria, the following resources below may be useful:

Standard Maps: Explore existing maps ready to download, such as street maps and zoning maps.
