Issue: Much of the IGWS data are not widely discoverable or accessible by the general public.
Objective: To enhance wonder and knowledge of the natural resources of the State of Indiana by incorporating geologic data into the Flyover Country mobile app.
Approach: We will utilize the Macrostrat API to contribute FGDC CSDGM compliant metadata and geodatabase from IGWS data archives to both Macrostrat and Flyover Country.
Products: Flyover Country and Macrostrat, with additional Indiana data.
Benefits: Mutual benefit for the general public and the IGWS will be achieved by making our data more readily findable and relevant via mobile apps.
