The Nebraska Geospatial Data Center provides internet access to a wide variety of geospatial databases
developed and/or maintained by various state, federal and local government agencies, academic institutions, and private entities. It is a one-stop enterprise portal for on-line searching,
accessing, displaying and mapping available geo-data relating to the geographic area of Nebraska. The Center has created a unified enterprise-wide metadata clearinghouse and developed a web-based
metadata submission site for the State. The online entry of metadata facilitates ongoing publication of metadata into the clearinghouse. The metadata entry contains descriptive information about the
specific geo-data and is structured in a standardized format. This facilitates direct access to metadata information, and as well provides links to geo-databases across multiple participating sites.
Such hypertext links are embedded in the metadata text.|
Currently, the Nebraska Geo-Spatial Data Center, including the Metadata Clearinghouse, is operated and hosted by the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources (Data Bank), with oversight from the Nebraska GIS Steering Committee.
