The NYC Geodatabase 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 a personal geodatabase built on MS Access that can be used in ArcGIS. The contents of the databases are identical and include geographic features and statistical areas from the US Census Bureau, transit and public facility point features from the City, and census data at the PUMA, ZCTA, and census tract levels. All features share a common coordinate system: NAD 83 NY State Plane Long Island (feet). Read this document for a quick overview.
