Geographic & Spatial Data Services
Geographic and Spatial Data Services is a part of Hillman Library's Digital Scholarship Commons (G49). We provide support for locating spatial data and for basic use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) software and tools.
GIS Workstations, Software, and Licensed Resources
The Digital Scholarship Commons in Hillman Library has a lab area with 12 workstations, each with a widescreen monitor and several GIS applications (ArcGIS, QGIS, Google Earth Pro) installed.
There is also a separate workstation in the Digital Scholarship Commons dedicated to provide access to certain Pitt-only licensed spatial data resources, such as the Geolytics database.
