The prototype GIS metadata clearinghouse, built in 1994-95, demonstrated the first attempt in New York State to build a common repository of information about spatial data and make it accessible over the Internet.

Today, the official New York State GIS Clearinghouse is part of a comprehensive statewide GIS Collaboration program. Available on-line through the NYS Office for Technology Web site, the Clearinghouse provides access to both meta data and many spatial data sets. It also contains comprehensive information about New York's Statewide GIS initiative as well as links to GIS tools, education and training opportunities, and GIS resources of the federal government and other states.
