A selection of Geographic Information System (GIS) projects are provided here for public exploration. These featured initiatives represent more in-depth GIS related work conducted either by, or on behalf of, the City.
Student Project - Parks Story Maps
In January 2019, GIS staff sponsored a student group from the University of Washington’s GIS Certificate Program. Over a five-month period, the students mapped a selection of park assets using a phone application to collect data, and created a draft Story Map to highlight parks and facilities. At the conclusion of the student project, staff in the Parks, Community Programs & Services Department refined the initial draft submission into five Story Maps and prepared them for public use.
The Story Maps are now online and can be viewed on the Parks and Facilities web page.
Low Impact Development Study and Maps
The Low Impact Development (LID) Infeasibility maps and data products were created for the City of SeaTac by Aspect Consulting in April of 2018 using existing data and LID infeasibility criteria from the 2016 King County Surface Water Design Manual (KCSWDM), as amended by the City of SeaTac Addendum to the KCSWDM (City Stormwater Standards). The process for creating these maps and the specific criteria used are documented in the LID Infeasibility Study report prepared by Aspect Consulting and dated March 30, 2018.
