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, 2015 (ACS 2015) data is now available.
  • NEW HTTPS Secure Connection: The White House Office of Management and Budget memorandum M-15-13 requires all publicly accessible Federal websites and web services only provide service through secure connection. Please update references to TIGERweb URLs as soon as possible.
  • NEW Design: The Transportation map service has been redesigned. Please see our TIGERweb REST Services for details.
  • Deprecation of Large Scale Map Services: We are deprecating the Hydro_LargeScale and Transportation_LargeScale map services in both the TIGERweb and Census2010 folders. These services will be removed once we incorporate the BAS 2016 data in the Fall.

This Release

The TIGERweb application contains the latest version of the geographic extent of legally defined geographic areas as reported, generally reflecting the boundaries of governmental units in effect as of January 1, 2015 (ACS 2015), or legal and statistical area boundaries that have been adjusted and/or corrected since the 2010 Census.

January 1, 2013 (ACS 2013) data is no longer included in the TIGERweb application or REST map services. We will continue to provide the ACS 2013 WMS.
