The South Florida Water Management District's Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Data Catalog provides visual and spatial data about water resource systems. GIS can be interactive and may include satellite pictures. For example, we offer contour data, but not contour maps. Special software is needed to use these GIS files.

GIS data loaded into our Enterprise GIS Data Library is available through the GIS Data Catalog.

We also provide Digital Orthophotographic Quarter Quadrangle (DOQQ) aerial photography through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP's) Land Boundary Information System Web site (LABINS). The data meet U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) specifications. If you have a need for numerous DOQQs, you may contact LABINS staff directly to arrange for the data on DVDs or USB drive.

If the data you want is not available at these sites, it is because:
  • SFWMD does not have the data
  • SFWMD considers the data to be security-sensitive
  • SFWMD does not own the data (it may be licensed from a vendor or acquired from another agency)
  • SFWMD staff has not published the data on this site
If you have a contract to perform work for the SFWMD and need GIS data that is not available by these methods, please contact your project manager or contract administrator to acquire the data you need.
