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.
Gridics can digitize your municipality’s zoning map whether you adopt our full platform or not. Is your smaller municipality just looking to move from a static map PDF to a digital interface? We can have your map live in a few weeks through MuniMap. Looking to create an immersive GIS mapping experience with rich parcel-level data and visualizations? Look no further. No matter your municipality’s size and unique situation, we can design a MuniMap package to meet the needs of your staff and citizens.
“Our partnership with Gridics is an example of the innovative investments we are making to improve services for our neighbors. The Gridics platform will provide staff with the data they need to make more informed and more efficient development decisions so together we can make Fort Lauderdale an even better place to live, work, play and raise a family.”
