The following data are collected and maintained by the MAT-SU Borough GIS staff and made available to the general public in “shapefile” format. This data is made to the public provided that the user adhere to the terms and conditions as defined within the Borough’s GIS Disclaimer and Acceptable Use Policy. Review this policy before using the data.
Vector GIS Data
Shapefiles are a non-topological vector storage mechanism for spatial data that were created by a company called Environmental Systems Research Institute or ESRI. The geometry of a feature is stored as a set of x,y coordinates, and the attribute (or descriptive) data is stored in a related database file. The file is really made up of a collection of files:
.SHP - Stores the x,y coordinates
Each of these files must be preserved to make use of the shapefile.
ArcGIS Server Services
If you are an ArcGIS Desktop user or web developer, you can consume our ArcGIS Server services in your application. Just use these paths to access the services:
ArcGIS Server REST services catalog: http://maps.matsugov.us/ArcGIS/rest/services/
Be sure to include the trailing slash in these links. Also our services are not directly previewable in ArcMap from the REST services catalog.
