A review of the North Dakota State GIS Portal

October 9, 2017View for printing

I recently had the honor of co-keynoting the North Dakota GIS conference. While preparing for the conference, I re-acquainted myself with the North Dakota State GIS portal. The timing was perfect because a team of dedicated and expert collaborators from many organizations had just completed work on a new portal that replaced their old Hub Explorer resource. The new portal, accessible here, includes information on how to connect with the state's GIS community through events and networking.

More germane to our topic in this blog, though, it also contains a link to the data sets themselves via the Hub Data Portal. The portal is thoughtfully laid out, with the ability to view data by content type and topics.

The North Dakota GIS Hub Data Portal uses DKAN, the Drupal-based version of CKAN, the world's leading open-source open data publishing platform. It provides a complete open source software solution for data publishers, and adheres to the API, data, and functionality standards of CKAN. The goal of this project is to combine the utility of CKAN with the ease of maintenance and extensibility of Drupal.
