2002 ARIS Geospatial Data

Using These Data: This site contains the geospatial data from the 2002 Atlanta Region Information System CD. Each of the following links connects to a .zip file containing a map layer, or theme, for the Atlanta region. Each .zip file contains the appropriate shapefile for each layer, along with the associated data and formatting files (e.g. attribute data, projection information, FGDC metadata).

Please note that all data are in ESRI's ArcGIS shapefile format. Download the zip files you need to your working directory, then extract the contents. Your GIS application should recognize the shapefiles when you add the data to your map.

The data were made available by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC). Users of these data should cite both the ARC and its contributing sources.

As noted above, the data here are from the 2002 ARIS CD. We make these data available for historical purposes. The ARC has updated the data many times since the release of the CD in the summer of 2002. See http://www.atlantaregional.com/info-center/gis-data-maps for the most recent data from this series and for other Atlanta-themed geospatial data resources. Data from the 2006 ARIS CD are available here.
