Home page image TIGERweb Overview

TIGERweb is a web-based system that allows users to visualize our TIGER (Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing database) data in several ways:

The applications allow users to select features and view their attributes, to search for features by name or geocode, and to identify features by selecting them from a map. The TIGERweb and TIGERweb Decennial applications provide a simple way to view our TIGER data without Geographic Information System (GIS) software and without downloading data. The applications use our TIGERweb REST Services.

The TIGERweb WMS and TIGERweb REST Services allow users to integrate our data into their own GIS or custom web-based applications.

  • NEW Data: January 1, 2016 (BAS 2017) data is now available.
  • NEW REST Services: TIGERweb now provides generalized REST Services for the ACS 2015 data and the 2012 Economic Census Places.
  • REMINDER Deprecation of Large Scale Map Services: We are deprecating the Hydro_LargeScale and Transportation_LargeScale map services in both the TIGERweb and Census2010 folders. We are delaying the removal of these two map services till further notice. Stay tuned for information on replacement map services.
