Description

With more than two years’ efforts, Purdue University Libraries are launching the Geodata Portal @ Purdue on this year’s GIS Day celebration. This geodata portal allows geospatial information users to search for information by two simple criteria: where and what, which greatly reduced the geospatial information access barrier for researchers and learners. Users can preview map, preview metadata, and download maps from the portal. Currently, our portal include data from: (1) open data at all the collaborating universities, including Tufts, Harvard, MIT, and Berkley; (2) data from IndianaMap; (3) Purdue open access map collection: historic aerial photos, topo maps, and campus maps. This data portal is developed based on the open source development project, OpenGeoportal, originated at Tufts University, and collaborated with a big group of other university libraries. Our Purdue’s modification to this project allows the system to work smoothly with Purdue server settings, and two metadata standards (FGDC and ISO) identified and used at Purdue.
