This is an unofficial map of Google Fiber in Austin, offering several perspectives on the status of the Google Fiber construction and roll-out process.
The default view "color by permit type" simply shows a marker near each location that is mentioned in permit requests filed with the City of Austin that seem to be related to Google Fiber. The markers are colored based on an automated analysis to determine the type of the permit, but this may not be accurate, or even helpful. Note that while permits do provide some clues, they are not necessarily indicative of the Google Fiber service area or construction schedule.
The "permit zones and fiber huts" view shows permits for building fiber huts, small buildings that contain Google Fiber network equipment, layered on a map of the zone numbers mentioned in many Google Fiber permits. The official meaning of the zones is not known, but the first phase of signups (December 2014) comprised large parts of Zones 1, 2, and 3, so they may be of some interest.
The "Fiberhoods" view showed the official Google Fiber Fiberhoods; however, Google removed this information from their website in 2016.
The permits are downloaded, analyzed, and mapped using a (rather messy) Perl script. This process is automated, and may introduce some errors (i.e. the algorithm may may occasionally miscategorize or mislocate a permit).
Previous versions of the permit map were simply KML files generated by the aforementioned messy Perl script and displayed in Google Maps. However, that was not very flexible; this version of the map allows for greater interactivity.
This map is not associated with Google Fiber or the City of Austin. It is provided for informational purposes only, and does not necessarily represent Google Fiber's actual or proposed service area or construction schedule. Not for navigational, legal, engineering, or surveying purposes.
