ArcSDE and MS SQL Server provide NCDA&CS with an enterprise GIS database. The spatial datasets are a robust,
standardized, and shared set of geographic layers (i.e. transportation, hydro, cadestral, imagery). The
datasets are collected from state, county and municipal governments and are used in partnership with multiple
state agencies. The data is shared both through thin and thick clients within the Department and with other
agencies. The GIS/SDE component also includes map viewers and special GIS reports.
