INSPIRE

Welcome to a glimpse into the world of INSPIRE – an impressive resource available through the state of Indiana!

The INSPIRE website contains a vast collection of resources and databases (over 70 of them!) financed with state and federal funding and therefore freely available to all Indiana residents.
