Metadata, or "data about data," provides information related to digital spatial data set. It typically describes the creator, content, quality, accuracy, format, age, condition, and other pertinent characteristics of a geospatial data set. The intent of metadata is to benefit the creators of the data, as well as the users. Proper knowledge of a digital geospatial dataset’s lineage is critical to generate accurate inferences and conclusions generated from GIS analyses.
Furthermore, it allows for efficient querying of metadata servers enabling access to relevant geospatial data. OGRIP has deployed the Ohio Metadata Explorer to assist GIS users in accessing geospatial metadata and datasets that have been developed and maintained throughout the state of Ohio.
The OGRIP Metatdata Explorer has been disabled.

Digital Orthophoto Quarterquadrangles (DOQQs)
Digital Raster Graphics (DRGs, USGS TOPOs)
Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
Ohio Statewide Imagery - The Ohio Statewide Imagery Program (OSIP) is a partnership between State, Local and Federal government agencies to develop high-resolution imagery and elevation data for the State of Ohio to benefit Geographic Information System users at all levels of government. Accurate imagery and elevation data serve as the backbone for the development of additional data sets maintained and accessed by government decision makers and the public.
LBRS - Location Based Response System - The Location Based Response System (LBRS) is an initiative of the Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program (OGRIP). The LBRS establishes partnerships between State and County government for the creation of spatially accurate street centerlines with address ranges and field verified site-specific address locations.
Ohio DNR - The Department of Natural Resources GIS web pages contains information related to digital geographic data and the GIMS Program. The Department of Natural Resources GIS web pages contains information related to digital geographic data and the GIMS Program.
ODOT GIS Data Downloads - Ohio Department of Transportation data downloads that includes railroads, airports, cities, townships, counties, highways and interstates.
PUCO - Public Utilities Commission of Ohio data that includes downloads for basemap data, electric utility service areas and telephone utility layers.
Ohio EPA - Data that is available to download from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Layers Include: Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report, Individual NPDES Permits, Beneficial Use Designations, Superior High Quality Waters, Outstanding State Waters, and Primary Contact Recreation Class "A" Streams.
