I was having trouble downloading the PDF version of this map so I’m posting a smaller jpg version here in hopes that it might help someone struggling to access this information.  This map will be more difficult to read but you should be able to click on the image and then zoom in using browser controls.  If you’re familiar with the Colorado Springs road network you should be able to identify your neighborhood.  The shaded area is still under mandatory evacuation notice.

Big kudos to the Colorado Springs GIS department who must be working around the clock to keep up with demand for their mapping and analytical services.

    Yes. Your blog is really impressing. I noticed you hold a PhD from the University of Oregon and you have a strong background in geo-spatial techniques. By the way, do you know where I could download the shapefile data for the evacuation map mentioned in your article? Thanks.
