Resources for Obtaining and Using GIS Data

Government agencies, higher education institutions, research organizations, 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.

Carleton College creates and maintains GIS data for its campus to support campus-based teaching and research activities and administrative uses.

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.
