All publicly available SanGIS data may be downloaded at no cost from the SANDAG-SanGIS Regional Data Warehouse. There are over 250 layers of GIS data available in ESRI shape file format. See the Data Download page for more information.
If the free data is more than you need or not exactly as you would like it, SanGIS can provide custom data extracts to fit your special circumstances. SanGIS GIS Technicians can extract data within a certain jurisdiction; within a buffer around a given point, parcel or shape; meeting your specific criteria such as address range, or parcel creation date. Data extractions can be provided in ESRI shape or geodatabase, Excel spreadsheets, CADD, and other file formats. Custom extracts services are provided on a time and material bases according to our current Price List.
Please contact us with any question about your project needs or if you'd like to order a special data set.
Ortho-rectified aerial imagery covering the County of San Diego is available in GeoTIFF or compressed MrSID format. This imagery was flown in November 2014 and is at 30 cm (1 foot) resolution. The 2014 imagery covers the entire County of San Diego and a portion of northwestern Baja, Mexico. Metadata is available for the imagery upon request. Coverage areas and tile layouts are available in shape file format from the Regional Data Warehouse under the GRID category. Look for the files that begin with “GRID_2014_Aerial_” or see the 2014 coverage map. For more information on the 2014 aerial imagery data see the 2014 aerial imagery news article.
Aerial imagery is priced as a data extraction but may also include additional costs for media. Small data sets that can be copied to a DVD are no additional charge but larger sets must be copied to flash (USB) drives or portable hard drives. SanGIS restricts what devices can be connected to our network so imagery data is provided on media we purchase. SanGIS will select the most cost efficient media for the copy and will add the media cost to the total.
The full, County-wide data set including the compressed MrSID files, metadata reports, tile layout shape files, and GeoTIFF files are available on portable hard drives at very reasonable costs.
Aerial imagery flown in May 2012 is also available and is either 30 cm (1 foot) or 50 cm (1/2 meter) resolution. Coverage areas for 2012 are shown on the 2012 Aerial Imagery Index map. Also see the 2012 aerial imagery article on our News and Information page for more information regarding the data and data set sizes.
SanGIS can provide maps and mailing labels for an ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control) license. SanGIS can meet the different requirements between types of licenses and jurisdictions – you only need to tell us the parameters given by the licensing agency.
The data extraction fee provides a PDF and/or printed map of all parcels within a single radius from the subject parcel and includes an Excel spreadsheet with the “Site Address” information for each parcel. Printed mailing labels can be created for a small additional fee.
SanGIS creates a 3 DVD set which contains the most popular layers such as roads, parcel, contours, etc. and makes it available for purchase. The DVD sets are created each quarter (January, April, July, and October) and saves the user download time and the need to unzip all of the files.
