ATLASES

To provide high-detail access to Aberdeen's geographic information to those without Internet access in their use environment, the GIS Division regularly produces atlases.

ATLASES AVAILABLE
ADDRESSES AND ZONING DISTRICTS

The address and zoning district atlas displays roads, lots, zoning districts, and City-assigned legal addresses within Aberdeen and approximately three miles beyond. Please note that the City's jurisdiction to assign legal addresses extends only about one mile beyond city limits.
Retrieve a single page View entire atlas*

PLATS

The plat atlas displays road names, lots, lot names, lot dimensions, block numbers, and addition/subdivision names within Aberdeen and approximately three miles beyond.
Retrieve a single page View entire atlas*

*Full atlases are large files and may take a long time to load; retrieve only single pages if possible.


USING ATLASES
THE PAGE NAMING SYSTEM

Atlas pages correspond to quarter-sections under the Public Land Survey System (PLSS), and are named in a format highly based on the PLSS:

Township-Range-Section-Quarter

As an example, the page named "123-064-13-NW" represents the Northwest Quarter of Section 13, Township 123 North, Range 64 West.


RESOURCES TO HELP YOU FIND PAGES

Within the Interactive Map above, clicking on a quarter-section in the "Public Land Survey System" layer (under "Properties" in the layer menu) will tell you its atlas page name. You may also find consulting the indexes below helpful.
Large-scale page index
(city only)
Small-scale page index
(city plus three miles)


ORDERING ATLAS PAGES

Upon request, any atlas pages produced by the GIS Division can be ordered for printing. Generally, atlas pages are printed single-sided at a size of 11 by 17 inches and a price of $1 per page (including sales tax). Double-sided printing reduces the effective price per page to $0.50, as using both sides of one sheet to print two pages is charged as only one page.

WALL MAPS

For general-reference, low-detail use, the GIS Division regularly produces large maps suitable for hanging on a wall.

ORDERING A MAP

Upon request, any of the wall maps listed here can be printed by the GIS Division. Due to differences in ink and paper use among different maps, prices for maps vary based on size and content:

Maps 11x17 24x36 36x48
Administrative Limits $3 $14 $17
City Limits, Street Sweeping, Truck Routes $3.25 $17 $25
General Reference, Snow Removal, Traffic Counts, Voting Districts, Zoning $3.50 $20 $30

Prices include state and local sales tax

AERIAL IMAGERY

The GIS Division offers many different vintages of aerial imagery covering the entirety of Aberdeen and much of its planning jursidiction over the past six decades.

STREAMING AS WMTS OR WMS

For occasional usage, or where your use case demands portability (i.e. you can't reasonably carry around multiple gigabytes of imagery files with you), the best way to access aerial imagery held by the GIS Division is through our Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)-standards-compliant Web Map Tile Services (WMTS; which we prefer you use due to the lower load they place upon our server) or Web Map Services (WMS; which we request you use only if your use case doesn't support Web Map Tile Services). By using these services to stream Aberdeen's imagery, you can spare yourself the effort required in keeping a set of imagery files handy. Nearly all GIS software (and a good deal of CAD software) has the capability to consume these services; consult the documentation of your software for instructions.

Our Web Map Tile Services can be accessed at

https://gis.aberdeen.sd.us/geoserver/gwc/service/wmts


Our Web Map Services can be accessed at

https://gis.aberdeen.sd.us/geoserver/wms



DOWNLOADING FROM OUR SERVER

If your use case does not allow you to use Web Map Tile Services or Web Map Services (e.g. you will have no Internet access at your use location), or if you intend to be a heavy user of Aberdeen's imagery, downloading our imagery may be the best approach for you.

DIGITAL ELEVATION MODELS

Various vintages of digital elevation models (DEMs) have been produced by the GIS Division that are intended to depict different features. DEMs produced prior to 2010 are only available for download as bare-earth contours and points in AutoCAD formats, while the 2010 DEMs are interpolated rasters that depict various levels of LiDAR returns.

STREAMING AS WMTS OR WMS

For occasional usage, or where your use case demands portability (i.e. you can't reasonably carry around multiple gigabytes of DEM files with you), the best way to access DEMs held by the GIS Division is through our Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)-standards-compliant Web Map Tile Services (which we prefer you use due to the lower load they place upon our server) or Web Map Services (which we request you use only if your use case doesn't support Web Map Tile Services).

VECTOR DATASETS

STREAMING AS WFS

As long as your use case permits it, the best way to access GIS Division-produced vector datasets is through our Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)-standards-compliant Web Feature Services (WFS). By using these services to stream data from our database rather than downloading a one-off copy of a given dataset, you can be assured that the data at your disposal is always current. Nearly all GIS software (and a good deal of CAD software) has the capability to consume such services; consult the documentation of your software for instructions.

Our Web Feature Services can be accessed at

https://gis.aberdeen.sd.us/geoserver/wfs



DOWNLOADING DIRECTLY FROM OUR SERVER

If your use case does not allow you to use Web Feature Services (e.g. you will have no Internet access at your use location or you have GIS software that cannot use Web Feature Services), you can still download a one-off copy of a given dataset to be used anywhere (which, of course, has the disadvantage of not reflecting any future changes to the dataset).

Browse downloadable datasets


EXPORTING FROM WFS WITHIN YOUR SOFTWARE

Within your GIS software, you can simply access the dataset you want to download through its Web Feature Service, then export the contents. Some applications, such as ArcGIS through its "WFS to Feature Class" tool, consolidate this process into one step. Compared to simply downloading the dataset as a file from our server, this process provides you with greater flexibility; for example, you can save only a certain subset of the data, or save the data in formats our server does not provide.
