City Boundaries Regularly maintained city boundary file updated via annexation notifications. Link SHP
Corners This polygon feature class is part of the Bureau of Transportation’s sidewalk system (the entire system consists of sidewalk, corners and curbs). The purpose of the system is to provide pedestrians with a safe way to access transit, neighborhood facilities, parks and schools. Corners are that portion of the system for which the City has maintenance responsibility, predominantly at crossings and intersections. The American with Disability Act (ADA) mandates that all improved corners be accessible. The Bureau makes progress every year toward the goal of ADA compliance. Attribution includes material, radius and ramp information. Link  SHP
County Boundaries Legal boundaries for Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties.  Link SHP
Curbs This linear feature class is part of the Bureau of Transportation’s sidewalk system (the entire system consists of sidewalk, corners and curbs). Curbs not only provide the edge for the pedestrian network but they also channel water to the drainage system which helps preserve the street pavement. This dataset contains four types of curbs under the attribute CurbType. These first three types are curbs: Blockface (3110), Corner (3120) and Island (3130). The last type is Shoulder (3140) and is used to graphically indicate the edge of pavement where there is no structural curb. Attribution includes width, style and drainage information. Link  SHP
Curb Ramps This point feature class is a reference overlay that indicates where curb ramps exist in the sidewalk system. This dataset is considered incomplete as it is not a standard ‘asset’ dataset for the Bureau of Transportation and it has been populated mainly on a project need basis rather than globally. Attribution includes installation date and project as well as whether or not the ramp is ADA compliant. All newly installed curb ramps are being mapped so the completeness of this dataset is growing each year.  More detailed curb ramp information is now captured in attributes of sidewalks and corners as well. Link  SHP
Crime Incidents This file reflects crimes reported to the City of Portland Police Bureau.  Classification of the crime type is based on the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system developed by the FBI and used by law enforcement agencies throughout the United States.
