Biodiversity data exchange and Nature Explorer Web application

Windsor built a Biodiversity Data Exchange (BioDX) for the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). The BioDX project helps solve the critical business need to make natural resource data more readily available and accessible to the public and partners, particularly online, by providing a Web-based application to provide enhanced access to natural resource data.


As part of this project, Windsor also developed and implemented a new Web application for the New York State Natural Heritage Program (NYNHP). The Nature Explorer Web Application helps the NYNHP in their mission to conserve New York’s biodiversity. This application makes important information on rare plants, rare animals, and significant natural communities readily available to a broad audience via the Internet using a series of both tabular and spatial displays and queries. The application also incorporates sophisticated business logic that permits internal NYNHP users and partners the ability to access sensitive data that is not available to the general public.

The GIS technologies used for the project include the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, ArcGIS Server on Linux and ArcGIS Server geocode services. Some of the features found in the system include:

  • Spatial Searching using municipalities, watersheds or user-defined areas
  • Search location by identifying map coordinate (several coordinate reference systems), address or place name
  • Tabular Searching
  • Spatial Data and Tabular Data Viewing
