What sort of information is available?
We have data for various things the general public might be interested in obtaining such as property lines,utility locations, topography, land use, neighborhood boundaries and transportation information. Data for much more specific uses also exists. Examples of such information are: critical areas, garbage and recycling boundaries, 1990 census boundaries, and survey control points.

How does the data come to me?
We can produce hard copy maps or supply some data in digital format downloaded onto a CD.

How often is the data updated?
Our in-house maintenance team is constantly working on a number of our layers (parcel, legal, street centerline, water, sewer/drainage) so that update is a daily process. Most layers are the responsibility of various departments within the city who provide us with updates as they deem necessary.

Who do I contact for information about services?
The number for general product information is 386-9138. If you have specific questions about your product, call Albert Gonzales at 684-7887 or send him
email at: albert.gonzales@seattle.gov.

How much will this information cost me?
Pricing for services ranges from $15.50 for a standard map, $22 for an Express map, to the current labor rate of $87/hr (subject to change) + materials for other mapping, analysis and data provision services.

How soon will I receive my order?
Both Express Mapping and Standard Maps are generally available for pick-up the same day of ordering. Other types of mapping requests have a turnaround time of 7 working days. Data provision requests are filled within 10 working days. (NB: All turnaround times are affected by the current workload but most of the time we can fill requests as stated.)
