A screenshot of FGDL 3.0 with a newly updated homepage. FGDL 3.0 was launched in 2000. In 2001, FGDL first allowed users to download data directly from the internet, in addition to the use of CD-ROMs. This update also introduced the ability to search for FGDL datasets.
FGDL was first launched in 1998, as home to just 80 layers. The data was originally distributed on CD-ROM and divided by county. Check out the original homepage!
