Under Heavy Construction

We are developing an online mapping tool for Oregon coastal data using an extensive library of mapping and GIS software components and packages, including ESRI's ArcIMS, Visual Basic, and Sun's JavaScript. These applications will enable users to create digital maps over the Internet using geographic data and metadata stored on our servers. Though internet map servers are not nearly as robust as desktop GISs, they provide a quick, effective, and often entertaining means by which to view and manipulate spatial data (and accompanying metadata) before making the decision to download to a local system.

Thanks for your patience and please come back and visit soon!
