The City of Wildwood has GIS (geographic information system) capabilities, featuring ArcGIS 9.2 software with spatial analysis tools and aerial photography. Aerial photography, parcel data, hydrology (streams and floodplain), and street center lines are updated by St. Louis County, then transferred to the Department of Planning.
Maps are produced by overlaying data. Some maps display general information, such as a street map, current zoning, long-term planning (master plan land use categories), or City Council Ward Districts maps. More complex maps are created by selecting a particular attribute within a layer to display a defined value, such as three acre parcels in the City of Wildwood, or a choropleth map showing acreages by range. Most maps are revised on a monthly basis to provide the most recent information possible.
Additionally, the city has an online interactive mapping system available. You can use this user-friendly component to research information on your own, prepare a print-out of certain layers of interest, or even search for a specific property.
