Datasets are member-uploaded spatial information, typically created using a Geographic Information System (GIS). They can be visualized and analyzed using mapping tools in Data Basin, and downloaded for use in desktop GIS software. Datasets include shapefiles, ArcGRID files, ESRI File Geodatabases, and NetCDF files. Most datasets can be overlayed, styled, analyzed, and downloaded.
Galleries are created by members to easily showcase and share spatial information as a cohesive collection. They are very useful for creating a digital atlas, for organizing a set of related datasets and maps, or providing a diverse collection of resources on a particular topic.
Groups are created by members to collaborate around specific topics or geographies, and control who is granted access to resources within the system. Group members can share, analyze, and discuss public and private datasets, maps, and supporting documentation.
