Note on releases:
From 2002 to 2007 there was one release per year of PLUTO and MapPLUTO. The purpose of letter suffixes in the names of the releases was to roughly align with cycles of DCP’s Geosupport releases. There was no release in 2008 during the transition of the maintenance of the tax lot base from DCP to the Department of Finance. Starting in 2009, there have been two releases per year.
Note to Licensees:
DCP releases all licensees of PLUTO and MapPLUTO versions 02a through 12v2 from all license restrictions.
Earlier MapPLUTO data:
Prior to 2002, DCP created three test versions of MapPLUTO for internal use only. These were not part of our public release. In the interest of open data, we are making these available to the public.
Please note that these three releases have no metadata, and are based on the tax lot geography of 1999. In 1999 DCP began a process of conflation that resulted in better spatial alignment of the tax lot geography with citywide aerial photo imagery. These three early releases of MapPLUTO use the pre-conflation 1999 lot geography. As a result, they do not spatially align with later releases. While the geographic data was not updated during this period, the attribute data was updated annually.
The 1999 data release is in MapInfo Table format and the tables are provided by community district.
The 2000 and 2001 releases are in ESRI Shapefile format and are provided by Borough.
