Navigating Irving Through Digital Technology

Screenshot of the GIS website for Irving, Texas.

The City of Irving Water Utilities Department is responsible for providing water and wastewater services to residents and businesses, as well as overseeing the Geographic Information System (GIS) team. The GIS team is responsible for building digital maps and maintaining asset information on the water distribution system, the sanitary sewer collection system, stormwater collection system, roads, addressing, boundaries, facilities and zoning.

City staff and field crews use the mapping information for the purpose of locating infrastructure, providing customer care, planning, design, maintenance and facilitating administrative processes. In addition to the infrastructure framework, the GIS team builds maps that are accessible to the public. As new residents move into the area, the city is encouraging the public to access its GIS mapping technology for a birds-eye view of the community.

Residents and visitors can access the city maps at CityofIrving.org/GIS.

Irving’s residents and visitors can find the following information on the website:

  • Aquatic centers
  • City facilities
  • City services
  • Fire stations
  • General information
  • Libraries
  • Mosquito trap locations
  • Neighborhood associations
  • Places of interest
  • Planning and community development
  • Police beats
  • Recreation centers
  • Restaurants
  • Trash, bulky waste and recycling collection days
  • Voting districts

The interactive maps are accessible on any device, including computer, tablet or cellphone. The maps allow users to type in their current or desired location and find nearby hospitals, recreation facilities, schools, etc. Residents also can determine their home’s bulky waste, recycling and trash collection schedule. Users have the ability to change their search radius, move the map, as well as receive turn-by-turn directions.

The map site also includes information on approved zoning sites for builders and developers. The site features story maps, which provide extensive detail, including text, maps and photos on an upcoming project or event.

 While the city has provided public maps since 2009, technology continues to evolve and integrate into residents’ daily routines. With this in mind, the Water Utilities Department and the GIS team plans to advance its map technology so that it is easy for residents and visitors to interact with, find a destination, and become more mobile in Irving.
