Welcome to the Bureau of Development Services (BDS) Maps & GIS website. This website is the Bureau’s location for Portland Maps and GIS tools that provide access to information about private property, land use reviews, permits and enforcement cases administered by the Bureau, as well as information on how to use Portland Maps search functions. If you are not able to find information through the resources provided on this page, complete property records maintained by BDS can be requested through the Bureau Public Records Access webpage.
