Neighborhood Boundaries

Since collecting data in 2006, Urban Mapping neighborhood boundary data has grown to over 100,000 neighborhoods in more than thirty countries. Because neighborhoods recognize informally-defined spaces, they behave differently from postal codes or other well-known geography, yet their value in local, mobile, and social interactive media is unquestioned. New data additional attributes help users manage areas of high neighborhood density. Local Relevance combines elements of social media, search and display to enable developers to build efficiently and intelligently.

For larger organizations that wish to host data, neighborhoods are available with periodic updates in KML, SHP and CSV. Documentation and sample data for San Francisco are available for evaluation. For customers seeking flexibility in a usage-based model, neighborhood boundary data is available through our adtech solutions.

A map of our current coverage and summary appear below. For non US coverage, neighborhoods are aggregated by country, neighborhood boundaries at medium zoom levels and neighborhood names at higher zoom levels. In the US, neighborhoods are aggregated at the country level, then metro area (CBSA), then neighborhood, and finally neighborhood name.
