Public BETA Release – VT Open Geodata Portal

The VT Center for Geographic Information (VCGI) is pleased to release a BETA version of Vermont’s new Open Geodata Portal!

http://geodata.vermont.gov

VCGI and its partners have built a website that connects publishers and consumers and helps them find, explore, contribute, and use geospatial information and resources. The VT Open Geodata Portal (Beta) “federates” geodata, web services, and geospatial applications from many sources (publishers) including several State agencies (e.g. VT Agency of Natural Resources, VT Agency of Transportation, and VT Agency of Human Services).  VCGI would like to thank our partners for their dedication to improving access to Vermont’s geospatial assets.

What do you think?  Please take a few minutes to explore the BETA site (http://geodata.vermont.gov), kick the tires, and let us know what you think (http://geodata.vermont.gov/beta_survey).  Your input will help us improve the website.  We plan to release a final version by the end of the year.  Thanks!

P.S. Known “bugs/limitations” have been documented here (http://geodata.vermont.gov/beta1_bugs).
