The Information Services (IS) section maintains the TNRIS digital data library and provides public accessibility to its contents. This accessibility is via the production and maintenance of numerous web applications, tools, utilities, and code packages, which leverage geospatial information for public benefit. Some examples include tnris.org's DataHub, multiple web mapping services, APIs, etc. The IS section is a strong advocate for open source development and the majority of code for their projects are available on Github.
The DataHub is the new modern web application built for the public to view, learn about, download, order, and inquire about TNRIS data. The application simplifies TNRIS data processes and workflows via a content management system which feeds the DataHub frontend. This allows for quicker and more accurate data delivery to the public.
