Geographic & Spatial Data Services

Geographic and Spatial Data Services is a part of Hillman Library's Digital Scholarship Services. We provide support for locating spatial data and for basic use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) software and tools.


GIS Workstations, Software, and Licensed Resources

Due to the Hillman Library renovation, the Digital Scholarship Commons is no longer open to the public. There are several GIS applications (ArcGIS Pro, QGIS, Google Earth Pro) installed at workstations on the first and second floor of Hillman Library..
