Web Feature Services and Information Dissemination in the State of Rhode Island

Award number 05HQAG0118, Category 2: Establishing Framework Data Service

Partnering with ESRI (software provider) and Rhode Island Geographic Information System (RIGIS; data provider), Rhode Island's Environmental Data Center (data distributor) will establish new Framework Web Feature Services that reflect the Governmental Units, Hydrography, and Transportation Framework themes. The plan is to offer all vector data that are both available in the RIGIS database and relevant to these three themes, via WFS by the conclusion of this project. Geographic coverage consists of the State of Rhode Island including Narragansett Bay and adjacent coastal waters. These  new offerings will be supported by Internet-based tutorials available through the Rhode Island Geospatial One-Stop, and will naturally be incorporated into geospatial technology workshops run by the University of Rhode Island Geospatial Extension Program. It is expected that this suite of new services will be eventually used to augment the capacity of The National Map.
