City of Chula Vista GIS - Products and Services
The City of Chula Vista has developed an enterprise-wide Geographic
Information System (GIS). Much of the data was developed following
a photogrammetry project wherein digital orthophotos were procured
for the entire City at a scale of 1" = 100'. Most data layers
are accurate up to 1-3', depending on the layer and source. Our
database extends beyond our City boundary; roughly just north of
SR-54, south to Palm Ave, west to the Bay and east to the extents
of the Otay Ranch project area.
The City provides a variety of GIS data layers
and maps to the public. There is a
charge for most items on a cost recovery basis. For further information,
please contact the ITS Department.
The City maintains a list of available data
layers that lists the name and description. The cost of each
layer is dependent on the size of the extract you want, and the
type of data. Data can be produced in several formats: ArcInfo export
file (.E00), ArcView shapefile (.SHP), or CAD data exchange format
The City of Chula Vista has orthophotos, which are basically aerial
photographs corrected for topography and distortion, and are the
highly accurate base for most of our data layers. These are available
in 1', 2', and 4' or in MrSID image compression format. These images
are available for purchase with the cost based upon the amount of
data requested. Please contact the
ITS Department for a cost estimate.
