Good Afternoon,

Question:  I would like to share my program's GIS data with others using an interactive web mapping application.  What solutions does OTIS/GIS provide?
Answer: FDEP's standard interactive web mapping application is called Map Direct.  It is a highly customizable, scalable web application that has been developed for more than 100 different business purposes.  It generates approximately 13,000 unique "hits" per month.  The current application delivers geospatial data stored on FDEP's SDE library to web endpoints (URL's) via ESRI's ArcGIS server services using the Java script API.   If you're interested in finding out more, please give the application a try at  or if you're interested in creating a "focus" for your program send an email to GIS.Librarian at<mailto:GIS.Librarian at>

Recent and upcoming changes:

The 2011 Aerial Imagery layer on Dataminer and Image Server has recently been updated by Steve Dross and Aparna Bokey to include Levy County.  Other counties flown in the winter of 2010-2011 are currently being reviewed by USGS and will be made available to users department-wide very soon after USGS approval.

The popular Table to Point tool is being rewritten by April Williford to be delivered to ArcGIS Desktop 10 users as an Add-in.  Stay tuned for official release announcement.

Have a great weekend!
