Weather related GIS data

NOAA provides a wealth of GIS data, including updates of its weather predictions.

Here are some useful links:

  1. The NWS GIS Data Portal, where you can download kml and shapefiles.  From there, you can go to:
  2. The NWS Web Services Page, where you can get the connection information for live mapping service that can be used in ArcMap.  Also:
  3. The nowCoast Information Depot, which has more metadata than you would ever need.  It looks like they are using ArcIMS, which still works just fine!
