The portal needs to provide the ability to upload, download, and search GIS data files and services. This was accomplished by providing a data input form, a catalog, the ability to download either a .zip file or to interactively 'clip n ship' a file from the map browser. Users are also able to display and query the data via the browser. A next phase of the project will add role-based permission functionality so that an agency can share data with specified portal users as well as with the public if they choose to. The hope is that the GeoData Portal can ultimately serve as the Arizona GIS Clearinghouse.
