City of Scottsdale – Scottsdale on a Disc and Online Digital Map Center

The City of Scottsdale has released its 2006 “City on a Disk” compact disc (CD) with aerial photos of the city and surrounding areas, over 250 square miles, flown in November 2005. 

The CD, which sells for $25, is available at multiple city locations including Records, the One Stop Shop (first floor of One Civic Center, 7447 E. Indian School Rd.), Citizen Service Centers, and the Inspection Services Administration Office (9191 E. San Salvador).  The CD provides perspectives that range from a bird’s eye view of neighborhoods to an aircraft view, thousands of feet overhead.  Maximum resolution is 2 feet per pixel – sharp enough to see the general features of a typical residential lot.


Simple viewer programs are included on the CD for computers running Windows and, for the first time, Mac OS X/Safari.  As a value-added resource, the CD also includes sample data from Scottsdale’s internationally recognized Geographic Information Systems (GIS) division, Scottsdale’s General Plan document, Planning and Design Policy Cards and Scenic Corridor Design Guidelines. Using GIS software, you can create and view maps that combine the citywide image with information such as streets, zip codes, school districts and more.  All software, documents, and other data are easy to download and install.

In addition to the “City on the Disk” CD, Scottsdale offers an internet-based Digital Map Center, on the city’s web site at:
The Digital Map Center provides access to the following maps:
Aerials Right-of-Way Crime Maps
Zoning Water/sewer ESLO maps
Flood Zone Topography Bond project 2000 locations
My Neighborhood

The “City on a Disk” and Digital Map Center are featured in a new brochure titled, “A Citizens Guide to Digital Maps” available at the Planning and Development Services Dept. or by calling (480) 312-2647.
