NYS GIS Clearinghouse


In New York State we are fortunate to have a large and growing set of GIS resources available publicly. The NYS ITS GIS Program Office hosts the States framework data program, the GIS Coordination Program, and a GIS web services platform. The training will expose participants to framework data resources including orthoimagery, elevation, addresses, streets, municipal boundaries, and property parcels. All of these data collections require partnerships, some with local governments, and others with private companies. This program will describe the GIS Program Office's partnership strategies and vision. Finally, participants will gain an understanding of the benefits of connecting to GIS web services which remove the burdens of downloading and handling large GIS data sets while making use of their content. The GIS Clearinghouse ( is the gateway to these programs, as well as data resources provided by many other agencies.


Seminar Goals and Objectives

  1. Explain framework data resources, including the specifications and limitations of: orthoimagery, elevation data, address points, street data, municipal boundaries, property parcels.
  2. Describe the purpose of the NYS GIS Coordination Program.
  3. List the GIS Web services available and how to use them.
