Maps

GIS Hub Explorer

The Hub Explorer is a browser-based interactive mapping tool that displays GIS Hub layers, grouped by data category. With this tool you can zoom, pan, query, print maps, and download vector data.

GIS Hub Data Portal

Use the Hub Data Portal to find maps, data, and other content provided by the GIS Hub and state agencies. With this tool, one can download data and stream the data via web services.

Visual ND

Visual ND is the GIS Hub's license of ArcGIS Online that state agencies can use for making their maps, data, and applications discoverable.

Mobile

Visual ND and other ArcGIS Online maps made available by state agencies are viewable using Esri's free Explorer for ArcGIS app.  Once this application has been installed on your device, use the Find Maps option and then for the search terms use the title of the map ((e.g., nd fish stocking) ) or the author of the map (e.g., ndgishub).  For assistance with titles and authors Visual ND is a handy way to find maps that you can display on your phone or tablet.

Data

GIS Hub Data - Download

Use the Hub Data Portal to discover then download vector and raster data. The Hub Data Portal is used to search or browse for data that you are interested in. For searching, you have the ability to search a region within the state (select an area of interest), search by search by a general term (e.g., road), or by keyword (e.g., “boundaries”). For browsing, expand one of the categories in order to view the content.

Once you have found the data you wish to download, click on the More Information button that is associated with each dataset. Scroll down a bit to the Transfer Options section, and if the data is available for downloading, there will be a link beginning with “Download”. For example, “Download Mile Markers”.

When the data has been processed and is ready for you to download, you will be sent an email to the address that you specified in the order form. That email will contain a link to a ZIP file that contains your data and the metadata file or files.
