How it works:
The California GeoPortal helps find solutions to real-world problems such as locating a new business or helping choose a new place to live. The visualization tool gathers thousands of data sources such as demographics, environmental hazards, school information and transportation, and makes the information more accessible and useful. The GeoPortal strengthens these databases by combining information and making it customizable.
The California GeoPortal aims to increase government transparency, boost efficiency and save the state money. By making diverse resources of geographical data easier to visualize and understand, individuals and organizations can make better informed decisions.
