DEC's Geodata Inventory can be browsed at the NYS GIS Clearinghouse. The metadata for each dataset provides descriptive information about how, when and by whom a specific set of data was collected and how the data is formatted and accessed. Some data sets are available for download as shapefiles, and some can be downloaded and viewed in products like Google Earth.
