MVRPC introduces new interactive online mapping applications and data resources

DAYTON — The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) is pleased to introduce new interactive online mapping applications and data resources that provide enhanced user experiences in viewing and accessing regional data.

Developed based on the latest Geographic Information Systems (GIS) web technologies, the two new online mapping applications are:

A new Interactive Mapping Application available at the bottom of Census 2010 Regional Profile page at www.mvrpc.org/resources/resource-center/census-2010-regional-profile

A new MVRPC Map Gallery available at www.mvrpc.org/mapgallery/.

Using one of these two applications, users can easily select, view, and zoom in and out on various maps such as Population Density, Minority Population, and Housing Vacancy Distribution maps. In addition, users can download the data in a new file format (KML file format) for their own personalized maps using Google Earth application.

As part of agency’s on-going efforts to share data and information, MVRPC is now offering many GIS resources through ArcGIS Online (http://www.arcgis.com), a collaborative content management system hosted by a GIS industry leader ESRI.

The resources are accessible by using the search tag of “mvrpc” in ArcGIS Online or in ESRI’s ArcMap GIS software. GIS professionals in the Region, however, are encouraged to join “MVRPC Regional Resources” group so that they not only get full access to various GIS data resources provided by MVRPC such as Web Maps, Layer Packages, and KML files but also to contribute their mapping resources and be part of the regional data sharing efforts.

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission strives to foster collaboration among communities, stakeholders and residents to advance regional priorities. MVRPC is a forum and resource where these regional partners can identify priorities, develop public policy and implement collaborative strategies to improve the quality of life and economic vitality throughout the Miami Valley. MVRPC performs various regional planning activities, including air quality, water quality, transportation, land use, research and GIS. As the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), MVRPC is responsible for transportation planning in Greene, Miami and Montgomery Counties and parts of northern Warren County.

Please contact Tom Harner, GIS Coordinator, at tharner@mvrpc.org or at 937-223-6323, for more information about MVRPC’s GIS resources.
