Summary
Abstract: The Geospatial Data Gateway or Geo-Data Gateway provides easy and consistent
access to natural resource data. You can search for available data by
geographic area such as county or state, use our point and click map tool to
find your area of interest; using a gazetteer, or by entering latitude and
longitude coordinates. You can also search for data by theme, such as digital
ortho imagery, digital elevation models (DEMs), or soils. You can then view a
thumbnail, or sample of the data you've chosen to know if you want a copy of
the data. If you do, you can either download the data directly onto your
machine, pick it up via our FTP site, or order it on media such as CD.
