Explore Surrey's geographic data in various formats, made available under the Open Data Commons Public Domain Dedication and License (Website. New window).
Unless noted, all Shapefiles (SHP) and DWG files are packaged as zip files and are updated twice a month. All files will also open in new windows.
Use the "Select by Area" option if you require only a small portion of the data.
Update: As of September 2012, the City-wide datasets are produced using a new set of data extractions and tools. Using the "Select by Area" will result in some missing (new) layers in the DWG file and some attribute data in the SHPs (again, just some minor adjustments to attribute names). These City-wide datasets contain the most up-to-date renditions of the City's data.
To incorporate the City's spatial data into your mobile app, mashup, or web map, explore our newly available REST endpoints from our Developer Resources page.
Aerial (Ortho) Imagery
Aerial imagery, taken in/around May 2012, at 40 centimetre resolution. The City's split into 1-square-mile tiles (or approximately 8 streets wide and 8 avenues high on a map of the City). Updated yearly, around September or October.
Derived from high resolution LIDAR imagery (2009), in 1-metre intervals. Due to the complexity and size of this dataset for the entire City, use the "Select By Area" link. Updated every few years.
