PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY PLANNING DEPARTMENT LAUNCHES
NEW INTERACTIVE WEB MAPS
Upper Marlboro, MD - The Prince George’s County Planning Department of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) has published a series of interactive web maps on several planning related topics including: Pending Development Cases, Inventory of Underutilized Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Properties, Existing Zoning Categories and Acreage, Historic Properties in Prince George’s County and more.
“The Planning Department is committed to making our Geographic Information System (GIS) information available in a variety of formats. These interactive maps provide an excellent mechanism to access GIS data without requiring any specialized software,” said Jim Cannistra, Planning Division Chief, Information Management with M-NCPPC. “Over the next several months additional web maps will be developed and published,” he added.
The interactive maps are designed to focus on specific topical areas and complement the Planning Department’s PGAtlas tool, which provides a set of robust interactive mapping capabilities that allow access to property-specific data, such as tax assessment and zoning information.
The interactive maps provide access to historic, demographic, zoning, environmental, and land records information in a user friendly environment. These maps can be used on desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones.
