Maps and Data

Mapping the Region's Future

Using the latest digital mapping platforms and technologies, the Thrive regional maps database provides a robust and vibrant look at the issues affecting the tristate Chattanooga region and offers mapping tools and applications that communities within the 16-county region may use to make informed decisions about their growth.


This public platform for exploring and downloading open geospatial data is hosted by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's Interdisciplinary Geospatial Technology Lab.

The public is welcome to explore the maps and map applications, which show everything from changes in development patterns across the region to access to grocery stores.
