Southeast Texas Addressing and Referencing Map

The acronym STAR*Map is the trademarked name for the Southeast Texas Addressing and Referencing Map. Created and maintained by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) and the Geographic Data Committee (GDC), STAR*Map is a digital base map and database that covers a multi-county region, including all of Harris, Fort Bend, Brazoria, Liberty, Montgomery, Galveston, Wharton, Waller, Austin, Chambers,  Colorado, Matagorda and walker Counties. The STAR*Map data area is provided in a digital electronic GIS format known as a shapefile.

STAR*Map was created through a joint cooperative effort of the GDC member organizations, including more than sixty public and private partners. The map includes more than 2.1 million parcel address points, roadway centerlines, block address information, street names, street types, census geography and many additional feature attributes.

Adopted by a number of local agencies (including City of Houston, TxDOT, Houston Metro and Harris County) as the "official" Harris County basemap, STAR*Map permits accurate overlay of many types of Geographic Information System (GIS) coverages, such as hydrology, bus routes, parcel-based data, utility data and other features mapped by the user community.
