Geographic Information System (GIS)
Welcome to the City of Fayetteville's Geographic Information System (GIS) website. Here you can view our interactive maps as well as download the data they contain.
What is GIS?
GIS is a collection of computer hardware, software and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing and displaying all forms of geographical information.
The mission of the GIS Office is to deliver complete, timely, and accurate geographic information that expands the City of Fayetteville's ability to provide quality services. The Geographic Information System website promotes the use of GIS to quickly address problems and help in decision support regarding the land use, infrastructure and natural resources of the City of Fayetteville.
- What voting ward do I reside in?
There are two ways to find your Ward: Open My Fayetteville Services, search for and click on your house, then look at the "Elected Officials" tab. Two, open the interactive ward map and find your house.
- Who are my City Council representatives?
Open My Fayetteville Services, search for and click on your house. The tab labeled "Elected Officials" will show you your two aldermen with links to their web pages.
- Can I see the City web maps on my phone or tablet?
Yes. Use your web browser and navigate to the Interactive Maps page just like you would on your desktop. The maps should work on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices.

Yes, the city website has a number of interactive maps maintained by our GIS department. They include aerial photography, the master street plan, neighborhood organizations, trails, wards, water and sewer systems, zoning, and other information.
- Is my house in the City of Fayetteville?
City Limits are shown on all our Interactive Maps , but perhaps the easiest way to find out is to open My Fayetteville Services, search for and click on your house. Then look at the "Elected Officials" tab -- the first line will say "City of Fayetteville" if you are in the City Limits.
- How can I obtain GIS data?
GIS data can be extracted from our General Reference Map or by visiting the GIS data download page. Click the orange bar on the right and choose the area, layers, format, and coordinate system you want (default coordinates are Ark. State Plane North). If this method does not have the specific data you need or if you have questions or problems, please contact the GIS division at email@example.com
- How can I download imagery?
Currently, imagery is not available for download. The GIS Office can clip imagery to a specific area and provide it to the customer in various formats. Please contact the GIS Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Can I get data in CAD format?
Yes, there is an option available in our General Reference Map for data extraction. Formats include DWG, DXF, and DGN. See previous question for more information.
- Can I download contours in CAD format and where are the elevations?
Contours can be "extracted" from our General Reference Map in a DWG, DXF, or DGN format. Elevations should be populated in the "Elevation" field. Contours can also be downloaded in zipped DWG files by the quarter quadrangle from our FTP Site.
- I get an error when opening a map.
There are a few things that can go wrong: 1. You may need to "clear the cache" of your browser. 2. Our maps should work on all browsers, including Microsoft Edge, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome. However, if you are having trouble, you might try a different browser. Variations in versions, compatibility modes, and other settings can cause problems. 3. Occasionally our computer that hosts the Map Services will go down; we will get them back up and running as soon as we can. Try again in 15 minutes, and if they are still down, please contact the GIS division at email@example.com.
