 Using the Miami21 Atlas
The Miami 21 Zoning Atlas is the official Zoning Designation document of the City.  However, as Miami 21 was adopted, a Geographic Information System (GIS) Application was developed to provide an interactive tool to determine the zoning of any property located within the City of Miami.  This application is a digital/electronic representation of relevant current and former zoning (Miami 21 and 11000), Future and Existing Land Use, Historic and Environmental Preservation layers, Commission Districts, and Neighborhood Enhancement Team areas.  It is intended to be a useful resource for land development inquiries and as a public information resource.  Although every reasonable effort has been made to ensure accuracy of the data, the information provided may not reflect the most current information.  The most official zoning designations may be obtained by the Zoning Office through Zoning Verification Letters

To view the latest zoning information, please use the GIS Application.  A video tutorial is also available for first time users.

The Zoning Atlas information below is provided for historical purposes and understanding of how the zoning designations were determined during the development of the Miami 21 plan.

The Miami 21 Zoning Atlas is a map of the City which divide areas into transect zones. Each transect zone has a name and color outlined in the Atlas’ key. For more information on the Transect Zones established in Miami 21 and an explanation of the concept of transects, link to the Transect

When Miami 21 was developed, the Miami 21 Atlas mapped all Quadrants--the North,  South, East, and West Quadrants. For ease of use, the East Quadrant can either be viewed in its entirety (East Quadrant Overview Atlas), or it can be viewed by pages. The North, South, and West Quadrant Atlases are only available in their entirety and are not further subdivided into pages.    There are three pages to the East Quadrant Atlas: Edgewater/Wynwood Atlas page, Little Haiti/Upper Eastside Atlas page, and Overtown/Downtown Atlas page.

* When reading the Atlas, you will note areas that are white and therefore do not have a transect zone designation. These are typically areas such as overpasses and interstate highways.

The Miami 21 Atlas will display as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. To view this file, you need to have Adobe Acrobat viewer installed on your computer.

How read large PDF Maps
Click the magnify button to zoom in

If you want to zoom in on a particular area, but also want to see the map as a whole, the loop button is a great tool.

Loop allows you to scroll over and enhance a particular area without making the entire map larger.

The Zoom's  “+” and “-“ features in this toolbar help you reduce and enlarge the size of the document. Remember 100% brings the document back to its original scale.

TIP: for advanced users or more specific questions, use the HELP feature in Adobe Acrobat PDF files.
