The Louisiana Map Portal
The map.la.gov portal is a data distribution center with links to several LAGIC data creation and distribution projects and other data sources including:
- 2007 LOSCO GIS DVD
- USGS/LAGIC Joint Coastal Infrastructure Project
- State Agency GIS Resources
- Local GIS Stakeholders
The GIS Inventory [LINK]
The GIS Inventory is produced by the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) as a tool for states and their partners. Its primary purpose is to track data availability and the status of geographic information system (GIS) implementation in state and local governments to aid the planning and building of Spatial Data Infrastructures. The Random access metadata for online nationwide assessments (Ramona) database is a critical component of the GIS Inventory.
LAGIC Metadata Catalog [LINK]
It is the mission of the Louisiana Geospatial Metadata Catalog to facilitate the acquisition and distribution of Louisiana digital geospatial metadata.
This catalog provides for the following goals and objectives:
- Manage the collection and storage of digital geospatial metadata for Louisiana.
- Provide a means to openly distribute digital geospatial data of Louisiana.
- Encourage the development of digital geospatial metadata for Louisiana.
- Assists in the elimination of redundancy in data collections and development.
- Provide resources necessary for new and established Geographic Information Systems.
LOSCO Data Catalog[LINK]
The LOSCO Data Catalog is a repository for the Louisiana Oil Spill Coordinator's Office's Environmental Baseline Inventory (EBI) data holdings. Users can access and download these free data bundles for use in various GIS applications.
Atlas Data Portal [LINK]
The Atlas geospatial data portal provides access to statewide Louisiana GIS data layers, Imagery, LiDAR and more.
