At various times throughout IGIC’s existence efforts have been undertaken to inventory the geospatial holdings, capabilities and needs of our community.
The inventory has always been undertaken with an eye towards the advancement of the Iowa Geospatial Data Clearinghouse (http://www NULL.iowagis NULL.org). Currently, assets can be inventoried in either the Iowa Geospatial Data Clearinghouse or the Iowa GIS Inventory (http://www NULL.gisinventory NULL.net). The GIS Inventory website is maintained by the National States Geographic Information Systems (NSGIC) organization and its primary purpose is to track data availability and the status of geographic information system (GIS) implementation in state and local governments to aid the planning and building of statewide spatial data infrastructures (SSDI).
For help in getting started with your GIS Inventory, please contact the Iowa GIS Service Bureau (http://iagiservicebureau NULL.blogspot NULL.com/) for assistance.
