State Geographic Information Database (SGID) Data Sharing Agreement
The following Data Sharing Agreement applies to all individuals and organizations sharing data with the SGID in any way.
You consent to this Data Sharing Agreement when you submit a Porter issue to introduce your data to the SGID. In cases where UGRC submits the Porter issue on your behalf, UGRC will contact you via email to get your consent to this agreement. If you need to discuss different GRAMA/license/disclaimer terms, please note this in the Porter issue.
“Aggregate data” refers to any data that cover a specific area of the state and are provided by another organization (such as a city or county) for UGRC to combine with other similar data into statewide datasets.
“External data” refers to any data stored or hosted by a person or organization outside of UGRC.
