GIS on Campus & in San Diego

In addition to the Data & GIS Lab, GIS events, a variety of learning opportunities, GIS tutorials, and GIS software, UC San Diego community members have several resources available to support their GIS work here on campus.

Be sure to check out our GIS Resources on the Web site which contains links to GIS resources of all kinds—including GIS & the Web, data links (by subject or by geography), organizations, geographic information science, and more! And remember, finding good GIS data and figuring out how to use it can be one of the most challenging parts of GIS.  Check out our GIS Data page for more details on where to find GIS data resources here at UC San Diego and beyond.

Here are some examples of how GIS has been used, and how YOU might be able to use it. Let us know what you think, or better yet, let us know how YOU are using GIS here on campus.
