GIS Data

The City of Chicago provides free GIS data for download in compressed shapefile (ESRI) format.  Available data sets include administrative and political boundaries, special incentive programs, points of interest and transportation features. Also, data sharing agreements for non-governmental and governmental entities.

NOTE: A software such as WinZip is needed to uncompress the data and a special GIS software, such as ESRI ArcGIS is needed to view the data.
