The primary goal of the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) and Texas Data Products Synergy Phase I Program, also known as Synergy 1, was to assess the value of EOS Core System (ECS) and CSR data and products for meeting the remotely-sensed data requirements of the Texas geographic information system (GIS) community. A key program effort was to integrate data and products derived from satellite-based sensors that routinely collect data at relatively coarse spatial resolutions with higher resolution data acquired less frequently to create useful products designed for the large and diverse GIS community within Texas state government. The vertical integration of ECS and CSR data and products with State of Texas geospatial data products may support the remote sensing requirements for a number of regional applications including hazards monitoring, drought management, land use planning, estuary management, agricultural productivity, and forestry. The system that offers integrated ECS, CSR, and State of Texas data and data products via the Internet is currently named the "Texas InfoMart." The Texas InfoMart is designed to serve geospatial data products to a community with diverse technical and computational capabilities. The Texas InfoMart will give "high-end" users the tools to access any data set in the archive in near real-time to support emergency management operations. It will offer the average user access to large operational data sets for image processing and analysis in support of natural resource management. The Texas InfoMart web site will also allow "low-end" users to view and retrieve pre-packaged data products routinely updated by CSR staff as required by the user community. This paper presents an overview of the system architecture developed under Synergy I that will be implemented in a prototype InfoMart during the next phase of the project, Synergy II
