What If I Need to Find Specific Data?

Free Text Keyword Search
To search for a specific type of data, you can enter single or multiple keywords. For example, a search by the term "fire" returns all data layers with the word "fire" contained anywhere in the metadata file, including layers like Emergency Services Districts and Fire Stations. You can enter more than one keyword to help narrow or expand your search by selecting the appropriate Boolean operator 'AND' or 'OR'. For example, if you enter both "crop" and "Kansas" using the default 'AND' operator you will only get records which contain both words. If you select 'OR' then you will get any record that contains Crop or Kansas.

Advanced Search Tool
Using the Advanced Search menu, you can search by any of the listed features (e.g. layer name, completion status, and geography).
