Description:
Abstract:
The street centerline represents streets and walkways dedicated to the city, some private streets and walkways, and additional segments not meeting either classification. All street segments lie generally within the boundaries of the City of Philadelphia. Each street segment has a unique identifier attribute.
Used citywide as base layer for many purposes/applications. The street centerline is available for reference purposes only and does not represent exact engineering specifiactions. The Philadelphia Streets Department makes no guarantees as to the accuracy of the layer.
