|Welcome||Welcome to the GeoGateway . . . . . a tool to help you quickly search for geographic data about Minnesota and its neighboring regions.|
The GeoGateway search returns titles of data sets that match your selection criteria. Each title links you to a detailed description of the data, called metadata, which includes the most important facts about the data and information on how to obtain a copy. Data often can be downloaded directly through the metadata.
