Geospatial Data and Mapping
Whether you’re an experienced user of geospatial data and geographic information systems (GIS) or are just starting out, we can connect you to experts and services to support your work.
How we can help
Through the library, you can:
- Find and access geospatial data, including natural environment and topographic (elevation) data, U.S. Census information, regional political data, and more
- Manage and convert your data, which might be in a format that requires a special computing program to analyze and interpret
- Use the digital mapping software we have available at the library, including ArcGIS Pro, QGIS, Carto, and others
- Get support for data visualization and visualization-related software to make graphs, network diagrams, and more
You can also sign up for an individual consultation, request course-related instruction, and attend our workshops in geospatial data and mapping.
Make an appointment
Schedule an online consultation with one of our librarians.
If those times don't work, let us know what kind of help you’re looking for and potential times you can meet by emailing us at email@example.com.
