Search for Map Services with MapDex & the Mapdex toolbar (ArcMAP)

Another goodie for those of you interested in locating web services and looking for a nifty new toolbar for use in ArcMAP... In our most recet GISuser Spotlight on Web Services... We look at Mapdex, the place to search for geographic data - Looking for data or map services? Look no more... Mapdex (www.mapdex.org) is a global index of 1,781 servers, serving 32,433 map services, containing over 400,000 GIS Layers, covering more than 4,000,000 columns. Taking it one step further, now you can even add a Mapdex toolbar in ArcMap providing you with direct access to the service. By default, the service returns hits based on a geographic search, resulting in servers providing access to DOQQs, aerial photos, and orthophotos. More about Mapdex and the Mapdex toolbar for ArcMAp is now authored at http://www.gisuser.com/content/view/7829/
