NYC Geodatabase (nyc_gdb) Contents Creative Commons License

The NYC Geodatabase (nyc_gdb) comes in two formats: a Spatialite geodatabase built on SQLite that can be used in open source software like QGIS and the Spatialite GUI, and a personal geodatabase built on MS Access that can be used in ArcGIS. The contents of the databases are identical and all features share a common coordinate system: NAD 83 NY State Plane Long Island (feet). The databases will be updated bi-annually.

The following objects for the five boroughs of NYC are included in the database:

Point features from the NYC Dept of City Planning

Transit point features from MTA / NYC DOITT

Features from the US Census TIGER files

Statistical areas from the US Census TIGER files

Demographic data from the US Census
