State AGRC Developing Web Services

I met with the Utah Automated Geographic Reference Center (AGRC) this afternoon to discuss the development of the statewide GIS plan and came back very excited about the things they are starting to develop. I anticipate that we will make some of these things available to the public as well as state and local agencies to begin to take advantage of some of the tremendous data resources available in the State Geographic Information Database (SGID)

Here is an example of a webservice that they have developed that allows the user to submit an address and receive back a result set that includes all the political entities that the address resides within.

I expect that as we roll out the Enterprise Service Bus, many of the anchor services will be GIS-related.
