GIS Layers

Converting your existing GIS data layers into KML format makes it possible for you to display your unique data in Google Maps and make it available online in an interactive mapping application. Elected officials will love it! Residents will love it! Visitors will love it!

Google Maps

Online City Maps are built upon the Google Maps JavaScript API and benefit from the speed, power, and functionality of Google Maps. As the #1 mapping platform on the internet it is easy to use and requires very little training.

About Us

Online City Maps was developed by Carte Design, LLC and is uniquely designed to benefit local governments by building the best online mapping applications available through a combination of GIS and Google Maps.

Our History

Online City Maps began back in 2010 when I was in need of a low cost mapping application that could display my GIS data on the internet. After exploring a number of more technical and costly options I came across the Google Maps JavaScript API and decided to test my programming skills and explore what Google Maps had to offer. What came as a result is in my opinion the single best online mapping platform for local governments on the internet. Not only was I able to quickly and easily display my GIS data online but I was able to do it on top of Google Maps, the number one mapping program online.

Our Process

We work with you directly to customize your mapping application to your needs and wants. We have a simple pricing structure and great support and products to back it up. We are proud of the clients we have been able to help already and look forward to working with you!

Our Approach

Our number one focus is to provide a great product that will benefit hundreds to thousands of people within your City or jurisdiction. We realize the benefit that our mapping applications can bring to a City and we will do everything we can to make the decision process as simple and seamless as possible for you.
