Guidance & Resources

GeoDat@Wisconsin combines a map-based spatial search with traditional keyword searching and faceted browsing options to locate and download geospatial data. Many datasets in the geoportal are housed in the UW-Madison Robinson Map Library’s geospatial data archive, while others are hosted by the original data producers.
