Productivity warning: You might spend hours investigating the cool maps available on the Open Data New Braunfels webpage. The GIS team has created a great resource for our community with a central location for GIS data, map applications, dashboards and PDF maps.
The information is provided in an open format for residents, businesses, consultants, and anyone else who would like to utilize the geospatial data maintained and administered by City staff. You can map out specific neighborhoods, parks, the hike and bike trails, floodplains, zoning assignments and more. It’s a wealth of information and a ton of fun to explore!
Once you’re hooked on the Open Data maps, if you want to try your hand at learning GIS, free e-learning is available through the City. CLICK HERE to access the e-learning resources. And look for some upgrades coming soon. GIS is underway with Enterprise GIS platform upgrades to 10.7.1, estimated completion in September
