What We Do

GIS support: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software allows researchers to create maps, visualize spatial information, and perform spatial analysis.  As the use of these tools becomes more pervasive, all types of researchers, from the physical sciences to the humanities are integrating various aspects of GIS and spatial analysis techniques into their projects.  If you are a researcher looking to use GIS we can help you:

  • Locate publicly available spatial data
  • Create your own spatial data layers
  • Choose the appropriate software for your research
  • With GIS training and troubleshooting
  • Manage and manipulate spatial data sets
  • Support GIS in your teaching

Research data services: As science has become more and more data-intensive and collaborative, data management requires more and more of a researchers' most precious resource: time. We can help you manage your data more efficiently and comply with funder and publisher requirements for data management and sharing through:

  • Guidance on creating data management plans
  • Reviews of draft data management plans
  • Assistance choosing appropriate archival storage for data, including on- and off-campus repositories
  • Help preparing, documenting and sharing data
