October 2010: Hub II Update
In January the Hub II was announced. The first phase consisting of a new database infrastructure was completed this past spring. The second phase consists of beginning the transition from ArcIMS to ArcGIS Server. This began in spring with the availability of updated WMS and KML services. During the summer new services including tiled basemaps have been developed and are now being prepared for production. Once these ESRI-REST and OGC services are available the announcement will be made here, via the NDGIS listserv, and via Twitter @ndgishub.
