The National Urban Database and Access Portal Tool (NUDAPT) is an innovative Web-based urban data resource that aims to facilitate implementation of the latest advanced urban meteorological, air quality, and climate modeling system. NUDAPT is a database and decision support system that is hosted in a Geographic information System (GIS) environment on an ArcGiS server at the University of North Carolina. NUDAPT is an open source public domain portal comprising tools for users to share data, exchange information, discuss results, and post their findings, papers, and conference presentations. It utilizes portal technology to enable a community-based modeling resource for handling the databases and for facilitating collaboration, allowing the researchers an ability to search through indices of relevant datasets of urban modeling.
