A geoportal is a gateway to Web-based geospatial resources, enabling users to discover, view and access geospatial information and services made available by their providing organizations. Likewise, data providers can use the geoportal to make their geospatial resources discoverable, viewable, and accessible to others.

NebraskaMAP Rest Services

Rest Services simplify the access to GIS data through a centralized location over the Internet for use on desktop GIS software, and mobile Web mapping applications. REST Web services are characterized by stateless interaction, cachable content, and a uniform interface of named resources.

Publishing data to Web Mercator Auxiliary

The big free data resources like ESRI, Bing, and Google publish their data in a projection system called Web Mercator Auxiliary. We have suggested in the past to convert to one projection system. Another approach might be to post a weekly dump of your server data to this projection system. The advantage for using it is obvious. Your Web API will be able to use the vast free data resources without republishing or reprojecting.
