New Records have been added to the Iowa Geospatial Data Clearinghouse!

The Iowa Geospatial Data Clearinghouse exists to help users find GIS data for the State of Iowa.  The site is a cooperative effort between the Iowa Geographic Information Council and local, state, federal and other GIS data producers in Iowa. Users may search by location or topic for available data, many of which have links to where data can be directly downloaded. Data producers are encouraged to register for an account and publish metadata for their GIS data collections so the public can easily find it. 

Over the past two months over 150 records have been added to the clearinghouse.  To increase the power of this data discovery tool we need even more records.  If you have information that is relevant data for the State of Iowa please join our efforts and share your metadata records!
