Catalog

The catalog section of the Wisconsin Coastal Atlas provides several paths to discover, assess, and download geospatial data for the Great Lakes coasts of Wisconsin. Catalog resources include Open Geoportal - a map-based interface to search, preview and download geospatial data; GeoNetwork - an interoperable geospatial metadata catalog; a simple data download table based on the open data catalog at the City of Vancouver; and links to a variety of state, regional and national geospatial catalogs.
