Apps, Maps, and Open Data

Putting technology at your fingertips

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Open Data programs are foundational IT services provided City-wide by the Information Technology Department. These programs strives to provide a robust platform for information sharing, analysis, and resource alignment.

The teams are comprised of talented and passionate developers and analysts that support internal and external solutions, enterprise business intelligence, content delivery across various channels, GIS desktop and web systems, and other emerging technologies.


Raleigh GIS and Wake County GIS developed the Internet Multi-Access Parcel System (iMAPS) in order to provide the general public with easy access to the City and County graphic and attribute databases. The teams have now updated the iMAPS application. This update modernizes the iMAPS platform and provides new tools such as a legend on the PDF map and group layers. You can be among the first to try it! We switched to the new version of the application in early October 2021. (That means the new iMAPS is now the default version.)  The old version is scheduled to be retired on Oct. 20, 2021. To learn more about the enhancement, visit this iMAPS page.
