Westchester County GIS

Westchester County Geographic Information Systems (GIS) develops, maintains and distributes digital data for Westchester County, New York. The program offers a wide range of online data as well as providing technical support to both local and county government agencies through highly trained and experienced staff.
 
In 2000, Westchester County GIS led development of the first countywide digital base map which now provides the spatial foundation of the county’s GIS program. Maintaining state-of-the-art computing and GIS facilities in White Plains, New York, Westchester County GIS staff utilizes the latest versions of the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) software for internet, desktop, and field applications, with Oracle as its database management system.   The program supports systems integration with latest innovative technologies such as Google Earth, Virtual Earth, ArcExplorer, and GeoPDF. 
 
Westchester County GIS continues to focus on applications in the areas of emergency response and public  safety and health, infrastructure management, land use planning, transportation, natural resource management, and Green technologies. 


3D Spatial Model Development

Over the past several years, 3D models have become increasingly important in economic development programs and urban planning projects. County GIS is working on development of four downtown 3D Spatial Models for White Plains, Yonkers, Port Chester and Sleepy Hollow by applying the new ESRI's CityEngine and ArcGIS Pro technology. The development of 3D Models is based on the recently updated countywide basemap.
