GIS + Mapping

We work with scholars to incorporate geospatial technologies and data visualization into their research and teaching by providing:

  • Consultations
  • Access to computing resources and software
  • Classroom instruction in geospatial tools and technologies
  • Access to data collections and assistance locating relevant data
  • Long-term project partnerships

These are our preferred software tools for this area of expertise. Please contact us with any questions.
