Portland Data Sources

See also projects section below.

portlandmaps.com is operated by the city of Portland and has GIS datasets. A phone call to the City indicates the information on the site is public domain. Also, it seems the raw GIS data might be available through Metro.

Plenty of raw data is available through CivicApps.org. City of Portland, Trimet, and some other agencies have contributed their data to the public domain.

Mapping Projects in Need of Adoption

This section of is a result of a talk given at State of the Map US in Portland on October 13th, 2012 (see the slides from the presentation here). The table below is presently a stub for the projects that were identified as important to the Portland map and which we're hoping the Portland community will collaborate on and complete. The details will be fleshed out and the tables will be expanded and reformatted during the week of October 15th - 19th. Feel free to add and modify in the meantime.

Addressing and Building Footprints

As Steve Coast has pointed out the lack of addressing in OpenStreetMap is the principal barrier to the project gaining mainstream acceptance. Being among the first regions to add this data is a great way to make Portland stand out.

There is a group currently working on the project to add building footprints and associated address data. A wiki site and a Github repository exist for that.
