A Neighborhood Map of Memphis?

Does anyone out there know if a neighborhood map exists for Memphis? Offline or online is okay.

Looks like you've made a great start. Did you do that with Google Earth Pro?

I've never seen one, but the Memphis Wikipedia entry has a good list of neighborhoods, some of which have boundaries.

the census also has a mapping system which is really useful.

Find an old telephone directory that uses the area + 5 listings.

I know that the 32 telephone prefix used to be called "Fairfax," and 27 was "Lennox."

You aren't going to get a precise correspondence, but you will at least get some of the old names for neighborhoods.

You can try Maponics, who provides neighborhood maps.

The Center for Neighborhoods creates a publication with information about each neighborhood in Memphis called the "MapBook". I believe it also has a map of each neighborhood's boundaries. Since this is a City of Memphis office the publication should be available to the general public. You can contact them at (901) 576-4CFN (4236)or go to their "website" at http://www.memphistn.gov/framework.aspx?page=275.

I've yet to find a GIS file that could be used but I'm sure there is one out there somewhere. I hope this helps.

sorry for taking so long to reply. Tim's response at the bottom shows the sorry state of my searching skills or initiative. I should have been able to get that on my own. That would be exactly what I wanted, but now with all the other comments, I've got an even richer group of resources. thanks everyone.

Will, I did that in the Gimp (open-source photoshop equivalent) using a google earth image. In the meantime, I've started one in google earth. I'll post a url soon.

Hopefully I can use some/all of the ideas here to help create it.

thanks everyone.

don't know how precise this is, but it looks pretty good
