Communicate and Contribute
GeoPlatform Communities

A key goal of the Geospatial Platform is to expand the use and understanding of National geospatial resources. Active social interaction plays an important role in sharing vital, timely knowledge to keep our collective data, content and services fresh and engaging. The more you participate and contribute, the better the GeoPlatform.gov experience becomes for everyone.

GeoPlatform on ArcGIS Online

The GeoPlatformArcGIS Online (AGOL) organization account provides enhanced web capabilities. Federal partners are able to publish their data as services with no size restrictions. The GeoPlatform builds on AGOL services with the harvesting capability of the GeoPlatform Map Manager




Search
Search Data.gov

Search the Data.gov catalog of geospatial data and tools provided by a multitude of federal agencies. Whether you are a Geographic Professional, Student, Teacher or Citizen, you can find data that will help you with your project, assignment, presentation or concern.

Explore the Marketplace

The Marketplace facilitates collaboration on the planned acquisition and production of geospatial data, such as elevation and bathymetric datasets. You can use this filtered catalog search to determine whether a potential partner is already planning to invest in data for which you have a requirement.



Apps & Services



Web services play a key role in any open platform experience. GeoPlatform.gov provides this experience in two ways:

  • Application services (tools) that run in your browser, which you can use to perform useful tasks
  • Web services that a developer integrates into their own application, through standards-based application program interfaces (APIs).


There are many apps and services already available for use and many more to come in the future!
