Access to NCTCOG Data

As of October 2012, NCTCOG (North Central Texas Council of Governments) converted the data previously freely accessible via their GIS Clearinghouse to a fee-based CDP (Cooperative Data Program).  The Library and various departments on campus are working with NCTCOG to regain access to this data ASAP.  Please contact Joshua Been, GIS Librarian (been@uta.edu) with questions or comments.

We have begun uploading previously archived NCTCOG files here: https://mavspace.uta.edu/departments/gis/NCTCOG%20Archived%20Data/ (UT Arlington NetID required)

Below is a table highlighting alternative sources for data previously available via their Clearinghouse:
