GIS Data Download Disclaimer
Before downloading data, please read the following disclaimer, which pertains to the data use and currency of the data:
FGDL Data Disclaimer:
The Florida Geographic Data Library is a collection of Geospatial Data compiled by the University of Florida GeoPlan Center with support from the Florida Department of Transportation. GIS data available in FGDL is collected from various state, federal, and other agencies ("data sources") who are data stewards, producers, or publishers. The data available in FGDL may not be the most current version of the data offered by the data source. University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no guarantees about the currentness of the data and suggests that data users check with the data source to see if more recent versions of the data exist.

Furthermore, the GIS data available in the FGDL are provided "as is". The University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no warranties, guaranties or representations as to the truth, accuracy or completeness of the data provided by the data sources. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no representations or warranties about the quality or suitability of the materials, either expressly or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center shall not be liable for any damages suffered as a result of using, modifying, contributing or distributing the materials.

FGDL regularly updates as many of its data layers as we have time for, but with over 350 data layers, it is difficult to update every single data layer as the updated data becomes available. If you find an updated version of a data layer in FGDL, please contact us and we will try to get the layer into the FGDL. Thank you!

GIS Data Download Options
There are two ways that data can be downloaded:

1. SEARCH/ BROWSE/ DOWNLOAD DATA USING THE FGDL METADATA EXPLORER
The FGDL Metadata Explorer is a web-based application that searches and browses through the contents of an ArcIMS Metadata Service. The Metadata Service for this site contains FGDC metadata for all data layers in the FGDL.

When you search the data using the metadata explorer, you are searching the contents of the metadata. Data can be then downloaded from the search results. In addition, users can simply browse through the metadata and read about FGDL data layers.
