GeoData@Wisconsin 2.0 Improves Access to Wisconsin Geospatial Data

Since 2014 the Robinson Map Library and the State Cartographer’s Office at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have collaborated to develop a geospatial archive and geoportal that helps GIS users discover Wisconsin data, maps, and aerial imagery. In an effort to improve the user experience and access to the geospatial data a new and improved version of GeoData@Wisconsin was conceived and it has now been delivered.

GeoData@Wisconsin now offers enhanced ways to search and browse, a more reliable map search and the ability to view web services. All metadata on the site now meets ISO 19139 and GBL schemas. Going beyond the enhanced experience provided by the modernized system you can now access more data than ever before. Now included is the addition of ArcGIS Open Data sites, Wisconsin Coastal Atlas data, WisconsinView imagery, and more.

To learn more about whats new and future plans for GeoData@Wisconsin you can view the presentation, GeoData@Wisconsin 2.0, from the Fall Regional Meeting in Bayfield.
