Welcome to the City of Galveston's GIS Online Maps Server. Here you will find tools to create your own maps. For example, you can find out where the City's parks are located or the type of zoning the lot next door to your home or business has. These applications have been developed by the City's Information Technology Services Department in coordination with the Planning and Community Development and Public Works Departments. Citizens and staff now have easy access to GIS data. Interactive maps are more modern and better organized. The new site is still under development and will be continually updated throughout the coming months. Feedback, comments, and sugggestions are welcome, as always. Please send them to TechSupport2@GalvestonTX.Gov.

What is new?

The Hybrid Base maps have been updated and are provided and maintained by the City of Galveston GIS staff. We have added 2016 Aerial Photography. The Aerial Photography is provided via an Interlocal Agreement with GCAD.
