Clearinghouse Services

  • Q1: What type of services do you provide?

  • Data archival

  • Data distribution

  • Web services (WMS, WFS, ArcGIS, Imagery)

  • Database development/area integration

  • Cartographic development

  • Metadata development

  • Application development

  • Application hosting

  • Geospatial data inventory

  • Coordination/outreach

  • Training

  • All of the above, except training. Archival, distribution, and web services are our primary functions. Database development & integration is a growing service area. Application development is performed on as-needed basis. We’ve pulled back from previous level-of-effort on application development due to long-term maintenance needs.

  • Q2: How are those services funded?

  • The clearinghouse is funded through an annual contract with the State of Kansas Office of Information Technology Services (OITS).

  • All database archival, integration, and distribution services are viewed to be part of the core function of the clearinghouse and are provided free-of-charge.

  • Custom application development is viewed as a secondary service that does not always have a broad-scope strategic impact; therefore this is a fee-for-service activity.
