In the News


  • Until now many National Park Service (NPS) locations on the Mall and beyond did not have street addresses. Working with NPS for many months, DC GIS assisted them in creating logical addresses for 53 locations. These locations include memorials, kiosks, restroom buildings and more. The Washington Monument was assigned 1551 INDEPENDENCE AVE SW. These addresses have been added to DC's Master Address Repository. This is important because it makes it easier to locate these locations.
  • Updated Roadwaysegment IDs in Address Records.  These change as the roadwaysegments are updated by DDOT.
