Abstract: The TNRIS (Texas Natural Resources Information System) is a mechanism in the Texas state government which links the users of naturaal resources and related data with those organizations which collect and store the data. The system is an extension of work to develop a Texas Water Oriented Data Bank which began in 1967. TNRIS provides for access to data in six major categories: hydrological, biological, meterological, geological, socio-economic, and base data. Users are in government, education and the the private sector. Data indexing, on-line data access, interface with other systems, and development of computer software to manipulate and display natural resource data are areas of major TNRIS involvement. More than 450 data and information files are available through TNRIS.
