Alabama's data portal ( is down and I haven't come across any other GIS clearinghouses for AL that are as good as say, Florida's FGDL.

Does anyone know of a decent GIS clearinghouse specific to Alabama?

@caitriggs - I've been here since 2007 and have not found any consolidation of data sources. Just pointing that out to say that it's not just something you missed. You might edit your question if there are specific data sets you are looking for. – Scro Jan 28 '13 at 23:23
I was able to find specifics by going to each agency directly. That's horribly time consuming though, especially since some had to dig up their data from the GIS department and then send directly. – geominded Jan 29 '13 at 14:18
