Data Center Description
The National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC) Spatial Data and Metadata Server contains geospatially-referenced data, much, of which is biological in nature, and other information. The Spatial Data and Metadata Server (SDMS) represent NWRC's commitment to data accessibility through compliance and cooperation with the National Information Infrastructure (NII), which includes both the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII).
The NWRC has developed a clearinghouse node with the National Biological Information Infrastructure Clearinghouse. This advancement allows the user to search for data from participating sources, view the metadata, and provide links to the actual data sets.
