City of Galveston launches new GIS hub

The City of Galveston has developed a new GIS hub, adding more than a dozen new maps to its collection of easy-to-digest data available to residents.

The GIS hub is maintained online at https://gis-galveston.hub.arcgis.com/, and easy to access from the main city website at galvestontx.gov. The GIS hub houses a collection of data and maps, including flood maps, which can help residents determine their flood risk and insurance costs. Also, there is a map detailing where city utility lines are located underground and a map for upcoming zoning cases, which residents may use to learn more about their neighborhoods.

The City has long maintained a GIS website, however, recently did an overhaul of the page and added more than a dozen new maps, including a map portraying storm surge risks, traffic and road closure information, and a map for tracking coyote sightings. There residents may also access route information for garbage pick-up, curbside recycling pick-up and street sweeping services.

“The City’s GIS team works closely with staff across all departments to develop and maintain its database,” City Manager Brian Maxwell said. “This information is then used to improve efficiencies among staff, and provide residents with information important to them.”

We encourage residents to explore the new GIS hub and its offerings. If you have ideas or suggestions for other data sets, please send them to GISdivision@GalvestonTX.gov. The City of Galveston constantly seeks ways to improve our services and transparency.
