Gridics Product Spotlight – MuniMap: City of Fort Lauderdale, FL

Published: May 20, 2022


MuniMap is the most advanced 3D zoning and GIS tool on the market. Click on any property in a calibrated municipality to analyze hundreds of parcel-level data points and visualize the zoned development potential of the site in real-time 3D.

As part of the Gridics platform, MuniMap integrates seamlessly with code text publishing and citizen self-service tools to ensure a municipality’s online zoning resources are always up-to-date.


Before the launch of MuniMap, City of Fort Lauderdale staff, developers, and stakeholders struggled to understand the implication of zoning changes on the built environment… Questions like, “What would happen to our skyline if we increased the density of our downtown zone?” stalled decision-making and led to unnecessary plan review bottlenecks.

In addition, the private and public sectors alike in Fort Lauderdale had no way of understanding, tracking, and visualizing proposed development projects across the city. Which development projects have already been approved? Where are these projects located? What will they look like? Answering these questions had been met with confusion for years


In just a couple weeks, Gridics calculated development capacity data for every parcel in the City of Fort Lauderdale, combined that deep parcel-level data with GIS shapes, zoning districts, and property records, and released the information for public interaction via MuniMap’s visual 3D interface.

Once Fort Lauderdale’s MuniMap instance was live for staff and citizens, Gridics then added a portal giving users the ability to toggle on/off 3D renderings of development projects across the city based on status (proposed, approved, and under construction). MuniMap has brought Fort Lauderdale’s zoning into the 21st century, improved transparency, and given over 20,000 annual users access to the most advanced zoning map available.

MuniMap delivers value to the City of Fort Lauderdale by:
  • Providing click-button access to development capacity data for any parcel
  • Giving staff/stakeholders the ability to test zoning changes in real-time 3D
  • Improving zoning transparency and remote access to data
  • Encouraging new development and streamlining the development review process
  • Visualizing the city’s future skyline in 3D
  • Decreasing front counter zoning inquiries + reducing zoning management expenses
