SARA’s GIS Service Request
You may use the web page form below to request GIS Service or download the form and email, fax, or mail to the list address at SARA.
The San Antonio River Authority (SARA) provides maps, GIS (Geographic Information Science), LiDAR (Laser Elevation Models), and Imagery data sets through our Open Information and Data Policy. Make a request electronically though our website. This completed form is also accepted. SARA will acknowledge the receipt of a request within 2 days returning the anticipated data of completion and the cost, if any. We make every effort to complete and deliver the requested job within 10 business days from receipt of the request. This is a general delivery timeframe, some requests may take longer due to the specific data set, and the work required completing the request. Please make requests well in advance of your project’s due date.
Basic map production usually involves creating a finished map document, either in paper, electronic format, or both) for a specific property using the SARA standard map template. The map can include SARA or non-SARA data sets.
Unique or custom map documents are available and require detailed instructions from you. Please provide map samples or drawings so we may completely understand your specific needs. The delivery time for custom maps may exceed the general delivery timeframe of 10 business days. Changes, edits, or additions to the delivered custom map, made to your detailed instruction, is a new request and the delivery timeframe is again 10 business days.
LiDAR and Imagery Data Sets can generally exceed 1tb or more in size. If you provide an external hard-drive, SARA will synchronize the data to your hard-drive at cost. If SARA provides the hard-drive, there is a cost for the hard-drive. Please inquire about these costs to you prior to making the request.
Costs: Generally, most map requests will not incur a cost. Custom maps, data sets not readily available, or other non-standard production may incur a cost to you. We will notify you if your request will incur a cost to you.
Delivery: Email, U.S. Postal Service or In-Person Pickup is available.
Make Payments prior to shipping. Receipt of payment is necessary for pickup.
