Abstract:
The Florida Geographic Data Library (FGDL) is a mechanism for distributing spatial (GIS) data throughout the state of Florida. The FGDL is warehoused and maintained at the University of Florida's GeoPlan Center, a GIS Research and Teaching Facility. Currently, there are over 350 current and historic GIS layers in the FGDL, from over 35 local, state, federal, and private agencies. FGDL includes data on Land Use/ Land Cover, Hydrography, Soils, Transportation, Boundaries, Environmental Quality, Conservation, Census, and more. FGDL contains primarily vector GIS data layers. Data is available for download free of charge from the FGDL METADATA EXPLORER or our FTP site. New data layers are continuously added to the FGDL Metadata Explorer.
