In February 2011 the Maryland State Geographic Information committee launched a three-week challenge to the state’s GIS community to begin inventorying their data in Ramona, the nationwide GIS inventory tool. Ramona helps data producers and consumers by enabling others to learn about the data an agency creates and maintains. Maryland’s Governor Martin O’Malley gave the project a boost by issuing a proclamation declaring February to be GIS Inventory month in Maryland. From framework layers to datasets crucial for situational awareness during emergencies, the Maryland GIS Inventory Initiative encourages entities that have, create, or publish the digital data used in mapping systems to inventory their data. This presentation will focus on how data producers inventory GIS data and how to use Ramona to search and find GIS datasets.
