  • Provides direct access to Google Street View imagery, and oblique (side view) imagery.  Users can now search for an address and retrieve aerial, oblique and street view imagery.
  • Adds several elevation datasets (shaded relief and digital elevation model).
  • Locate new construction projects and multifamily sites
  • Create address labels.
  • Receive weekly Development Notification updates of development applications accepted by the Planning Department.  

According to Michael Shean, PGAtlas Supervisor, “the Planning Department is committed to increasing public access and transparency of geographic information by providing data through a variety of formats and creating leading edge applications.”  Applications are available on the Planning Department’s map gallery page,
