In summary, if you wish to create a GIS, you will need the spatial data to serve as the fuel for operating the GIS.
The NSDI is the infrastructure or highway that allows a user to search for and find spatial data.
The NCGDC is the local clearinghouse or stop on the larger highway that offers the user a directory of spatial data for North Carolina.Using the "Citizen's Guide to Spatial Data and NSDI", you can access the available data sets to help you answer questions and create your own GIS. Visit this site anytime to guide you through this process.
