Future phases of the Austin Historical Survey Wiki could include geographic information systems (GIS) layers for identified historic landmarks and historic districts as well as other layers that are useful for identification of historic resources and research. These include neighborhood association boundaries, water features, subdivision boundaries, etc. 

Below are maps and GIS downloads made available through the Austin Historical Survey Project as well as links to data available from the City of Austin and the Texas Historical Commission.

City of Austin Historic Landmarks and Properties in Historic Districts

The City of Austin's Development Map Viewer provides a way to look up individual properties to see if they historic landmarks or are within local historic districts. It is possible to look up information for individual properties, but there is no way to easily view all properties at once that have landmark designation or that are within local historic districts. The Zoning Map on the Development Viewer labels zoning codes for properties. If a property is labeled with an "H," it has been designated an Austin historic landmark. If it is labeled with an "HD," it is located within a local historic district. The Development Map Viewer does not indicated whether a property is contributing or noncontributing to a district.

For those who use GIS software, City of Austin historic landmarks, including moonlight towers are available on the City of Austin GIS Data page. Once can also download a Zoning layer with "H" and "HD" information. There is also a layer that contains National Register District boundaries along with other overlay zone boundaries. The City of Austin Communication and Technology Management Department does its best to keep this data up-to-date; however, data represents a snapshot in time.

 

City of Austin Comprehensive Survey of Cultural Resources Map (1984)

Map sections from the 1984 Comprehensive Cultural Resources Survey Map were scanned for use in preparing information for the Austin Historical Survey Wiki. These scans were georeferenced for use in geographic information systems (GIS).

Texas Historic Atlas

The Texas Historical Commission's Texas Historic Atlas provides access to geographic data for historic and archaeological resources in Travis County such as State Archeological Landmarks, data from some neighborhood historical surveys, Historical Markers, etc.

The Data Download page of the THC Atlas provides data in comma delimited format and a link to their ftp site with GIS data available for download.
