GIS Datasets

MARC staff maintain many GIS datasets describing boundaries, resources, and features in the Kansas City Region. The MARC GIS program provides data for public access in order to increase regional awareness on shared issues, to provide a public service, and to assist local governments and planning agencies with their own maps, analyses and decision-making processes.

Many datasets cover the 9-county region, which includes Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami and Wyandotte Counties in Kansas, and Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte and Ray Counties in Missouri. Exceptions are noted below.

MARC makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of data or maps. MARC shall not be liable under any circumstances for any direct, special, incidental or consequential damages with respect to any claim by any user or third party on account of or arising from the use of data or maps.

MARC provides custom mapping and data services for $75 per hour. Contact MARC’s GIS staff for more information.

If you don’t find the data you’re looking for, please let us know what it is, and we’ll consider including it below.
