The Delaware DataMIL was redesigned to take advantage of more modern web technologies as well as to answer key feature requests to the system. In particular, the DataMIL now hosts complete FGDC compliant metadata for all basemap layers, all data can be downloaded as raw GIS data files as well as ArcIMS and WMS map services, and all current and historical aerial imagery can be downloaded via a tiling scheme that has been is use for flights since 2002.
The Delaware Geological Survey (DGS) Delaware Data Mapping and Integration Laboratory (DataMIL) team modified and improved the DataMIL web site in several ways to ensure that the Delaware GIS community and the citizens of Delaware can take full advantage of Delaware’s Spatial Data Framework Layers (Aerial Imagery, Boundaries, County Parcels, Elevation, Geographic Names, Surface Cover, Transportation, and Water Features). These important basemap layers are used regularly by state, county, and local agencies as well as by planners, environmental and engineering consultants, developers, realtors, and the public. DataMIL has served Delaware’s framework layers since its release in 2002, and the data are part of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI).
