Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission Introduces Additional Web Maps and Data Resources

Dayton, OH - The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) is pleased to introduce new interactive web maps and data resources which have been added to MVRPC’s Online Map Gallery.

MVRPC’s Online Map Gallery, available at, is part of the agency’s on-going effort to share data and information using Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

New maps and data include:

  • updated generalized zoning information;
  • updated information on jurisdictional adopted land use plans, and
  • updated open space inventory.

All of the data is multi-county or regional in scale. Data can be accessed as web maps, KML files (for use in applications like Google Earth) and Layer Packages (for GIS professionals using ArcGIS software).

The zoning information update is a revision of the data originally compiled in 2008 and made available through the Online Map Gallery since its launch in 2012. Jurisdictional zoning was compiled from across the Region and generalized into several useful categories.

Similarly, adopted land use plans for jurisdictions across the Region were consulted and compiled into an updated version of a layer previously created in 2009 and also available on the Online Map Gallery.

Additionally, the Regional Open Space Inventory, first created in 2005, was updated throughout 2015 in conjunction with the agency’s recently published Open Space Plan.

Various web maps and data are also available through ArcGIS Online (, using the search tag of “mvrpc” in ArcGIS Online or in ESRI’s ArcMap GIS software.
