Current Status: The Deli is Retired.
Important: The DNR Data Deli has been retired. Nearly all of the data that the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources has published from the DNR Data Deli has been migrated to a
new home: the Minnesota Geospatial Commmons, a collaborative place for users and publishers
of geospatial resources about Minnesota. Please update your bookmark.
Just so you know, the DNR data on the Minnesota Geospatial Commons is linked directly into the DNR's
internal data publishing system and is updated nightly. If you have an issue related to the retiring of the Deli,
use the "Contact Us" link above to send us an email.
The new site has many added benefits such as a modern search system, multiple data formats downloaded
directly from an anonymous FTP server, and a clean and easy to use web interface. Please head over to
the Minnesota Geospatial Commons and give it a try.
Applause and thanks to Steve Lime and Robert Maki, the two principal architects of what for over a
decade was known as one of the best GIS data distribution sites in the country, and most of all for making real
the goal of free data that has fueled the success of countless GIS projects in the state of Minnesota and beyond.
It's been a good run... thanks for your support of the Deli over the years, and we look forward to serving you
~ The DNR Data Deli Team
even better via the Minnesota Geospatial Commons!
