Type of Data Shares Definitions:

  • Map services are data provided directly by the agency from their own servers in the form of a map service. Data included as services are updated and maintained only by the data provider. 
  • Application links are direct links from the NREX application to other map applications and their resources. The data are not stored in NREX in this case, but rather users are redirected to another map application for additional resources. 
  • National-level map services are data provided by federal agencies for public use.  
  • Data share indicates when agencies share their data directly with the application developers for use in the application. In the case of data shares, the data provider is responsible for providing the most up to date data available to the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC), which is responsible for maintaining the map services. 
  • Passive data share are cases where agencies do not provide data directly, but rather WyGISC downloads data from agency sites, and stores and serves data directly for use in NREX.
