With the aid of a 1997 Federal Geographic Data Committee CCAP Award, Cornell's Albert R. Mann Library recently established the Cornell University Geospatial Information Repository (CUGIR), a Web-based clearinghouse containing geospatial data and metadata related to New York State. The staff at Mann Library has established an efficient model for spatial data distribution. This paper describes the processes, problems, and solutions involved in the creation of a geospatial data distribution system.
