Description: This dataset includes over 2.9 million individual points for addresses in the County. Data has been compiled from best available sources, including city databases, LA County Assessor parcels, and the County’s House Numbering maps. Please see the Source field for information. For more information, click here to open the entry in the LA County GIS Data Portal.Street Name information has been split into multiple fields to support the County’s specifically designed geocoders – please see the entry on LA County Specific Locators and Matching rules for more information.Multi-address ParcelsSome of our data sources (LA City, LA County, for example) have mapped each individual address in their city. These may also show unit information for an address point. A property with multiple addresses will show a point for each address. For some cities where this has not happened, the data source is the Assessor, where the primary address of the property may be the only address shown. We invite cities and sources with more detailed information to join the CAMS consortium to continue to improve the data.Legal vs. Postal CitiesMany users confuse the name the Post Office delivers main to (e.g. Van Nuys, Hollywood) as a legal city (in this case Los Angeles), when they are a postal city. The County contains 88 legal cities, and over 400 postal names that are tied to the zipcodes. To support useability and geocoding, we have attached the first 3 postal cities to each address, based upon its zipcocode.
Description: This dataset can be used for two purposes:1. Geocoding addresses in LA County – this file currently geocodes > 99.5% of the addresses in our test files (5,000 out of 8 million addresses) using the County’s geocoding engines.This last statement is important– the County splits the street names and addresses differently than most geocoders. This means that you cannot just use this dataset with the standard ESRI geocoding (US Streets) engine. You can standardize the data to resolve this, and we will be publishing the related geocoding rules and engines along with instructions on how to use them, in the near future. Please review the data fields to understand this information.2. Mapping street centerlines in LA County – note that the street types in this file are not fully updated yet. Use with caution.This file should NOT be used for:Routing and network analysisJurisdiction and pavement managementFor more information, click here to see the Data Portal Entry
Description: This layer represents current city boundaries within Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works provides the most current shapefiles representing city boundariesand city annexationson the Los Angeles County GIS Data Portal. True, legal boundaries are only determined on the ground by surveyors licensed in the State of California. Numerous records are freely available at the Land Records Informaitonwebsite, hosted by the Department of Public Works.Principal attributes include:CITY_NAME: represents the city's name.CITY_TYPE: may be used for definition queries; "Unincorporated" or "City".FEAT_TYPE: identifies the feature that each polygon represents:Land - This value is used for polygons representing the land masses, if you want to see only land features on your map.Pier - This value is used for polygons representing piers along the coastline. One example is the Santa Monica Pier.Breakwater - This value is used for polygons representing man-made barriers that protect the harbors.Water - This value is used for polygons representing navigable waters inside the harbors and marinas.3NM Buffer - This value is used for polygons representing the three seaward nautical miles within the cities' limits, per the Submerged Lands Act.POPULATION: Information in this field is supplied by Mark Greninger (email@example.com).Reference Date: 2013
