services: express mapping service
|What is Express Mapping Service?
Express Mapping Service takes advantage of the City's sophisticated Geographic
Information System (GIS) to quickly produce simple, pre-designed maps at the
11"x17" size. Using a set of specialized mapping tools that automates the
otherwise time-consuming process of translating geographic data into map form, SPU GIS
analysts can quickly create a color map showing your area and theme(s) of interest.
Express Mapping Service is offered to City staff and the public as an inexpensive
alternative to Custom Mapping Service which results in a made-to-order map customized to
meet your specific size, scale and content requirements.
|How Long Does It Take?
a GIS Analyst is available to work on your order immediately, the map will be ready in
approximately 30 minutes from the time your order is placed. If other orders are ahead of
yours, or a GIS Analyst is not available to produce your map immediately, you may be asked
to return at a later time the same day to pick up your finished map. With prepayment, your
map(s) can be mailed to you.
