Resources for Using and Locating GIS Data

Government agencies, higher education institutions, research organizations, NGOs (Non-Government Organizations), and private data vendors are the major GIS data providers.  These data may be acquired over the Internet or with a request to the data providers, at no cost or with a fee.  Several GIS datasets for Carleton College campus created by the ENTS GIS Lab are available for download from the Carleton College Campus GIS Web page (log on with a Carleton user account required).

Often you will need to modify the acquired data to fit the needs of your project.  Contact Wei-Hsin Fu (x5733, wfu@carleton.edu) if you need help in acquiring or editing your GIS data.
