Alabama Metadata Portal
Entry ID: GSALA_Alabama_Maps
Abstract: The Alabama Metadata Portal is being developed through a collaborative
effort of the Geological Survey of Alabama (GSA) and the Alabama Emergency
Management Agency (AEMA) . AEMA provided funding to GSA to develop and
implement this prototype internet-based geospatial data portal for the search,
discovery, and, as appropriate, distribution of Alabama geospatial data.
Various state and local ... government entities in Alabama are making
substantial investments in the collection, management, and use of geospatial
data. AEMA and GSA are working collaboratively to develop this geospatial data
portal which, when fully implemented, will allow cooperators and users to
publish information about available geospatial data for Alabama and surrounding
areas, as well to search for, discover, and access geospatial data.
This Alabama Metadata Portal will facilitate the ability of governmental
organizations (and others who choose to participate) to share their geospatial
resources and to find and access geospatial data that have been developed or
compiled by others.
