The NYC Geodatabase (nyc_gdb) is a resource designed for mapping and analyzing city-level features and data in GIS. The database 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.
