How to Search and Download Data

You may use the search bar at the top of the page to find data. Once you find a dataset you would like to download, select the data and view the available download options. Datasets can also be filtered to display only the features of the dataset that you are interested in for download. Data is offered for download in several formats. Spatial and tabular data formats (CSV, KML, shapefile, and JSON) are available for use in GIS and other applications. Mobile users may require additional software to view downloaded data. To edit a shapefile on an iOS device, users will need to unzip the file with an app such as iZip and then open the file in a viewer/editor such as iGIS.
