PGHSNAP Raw Data Download Center

What is PGHSNAP raw data?

PGHSNAP raw data is available for you to use any way you want--you can look at spreadsheets online, download them for later use, create charts and graphs, stream data into smartphone apps, and much more.  All the data shown here is the same as what's available in the PGHSNAP Published Data documents, but in raw form.  For most data sets, we have things organized by neighborhood and planning sector.

This data is all subject to change (see the Terms of Use in the Legal tab for more info)--we will be adding new datasets from time to time, and updating them as needed.  Using the Google Docs version will ensure that you always have the most current data, but if you choose to download the data to your computer, be sure to sign up to the PGHSNAP Update list so that you can find out by email when we issue major updates to the data.

How do I access the data?

You can access the data in a by selecting one of the tabs at right:

  • Spreadsheets:  Opens in Google Docs, from which you can also download files in Excel, CSV, OpenOffice, etc.  You can also save them to your own Google account and even stream the data into your own website and/or apps.
  • Map Files:  For use in Google Maps, Google Earth, & ESRI.

Within each tab, there are more details about each data format and how to use them.  There's also a tab that covers the data sources we used to compile everything, and a tab outlining the terms of use for the PGHSNAP Raw Data Center.


Get the data here:
