Data, Maps & Statistics

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) enable users to create, combine, and analyze geocoded datathat is, information connected in some manner to geographic coordinates. GIS tools range from simple and lightweight applications to extremely powerful and complicated suites of software.

Whether you would like to create a spatio-temporal exploration of historical events, embed an interactive map in a web-based project, or conduct a spatial analysis of research data, we can assist you with your project. Our GIS Coordinator will help you with identifying the right tool for your project—from Google Maps to ArcGIS.

The best place to get started is our Research Guide on support for Geographic Information Systems at the Jean and Alexander Heard Library.
