Latest edition of MapPluto Now Available

We now have the latest version of the New York City Planning Tax Lot Layers; MapPLUTO 09 V1 is here and includes data updated through Spring of 2009.  MapPLUTO models tax lots throughout New York City. This dataset represents a compilation of data from various government agencies throughout New York. The attribute data pertains to tax lot and primary building characteristics and information related to administrative and political districts for each tax lot in New York City. The underlying geography is derived from the Department of City Planning’s Tax Block and Tax Lot Base Map project.

The datasets are only available in the EDS lab during lab hours.
