Indiana Offers Grants for County WFS

As part of the IndianaMap data sharing initiative, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security is offering each Indiana county up to $14,894 to host framework data on a Web Feature Service (WFS), which will provide IDHS a common operating picture during an emergency.

The IndianaMap is a single statewide map for Indiana. It includes the information people need most in a format that is accessible to both expert GIS users and the general public.

The grant guidance requires (at a minimum) each county feature service to provide -

• Point address data (excluding personal information e.g., names and phone numbers)
• Parcel data (excluding personal information e.g., names, phone numbers)
• Local governmental unit boundary data
• Street centerline data
