GIS allows us to create interactive maps that help to visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts. A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. ArcGIS 10.2 mapping software is loaded on all Windows computers throughout Lauinger Library and Blommer Science Library. Copies of ArcGIS and the Data and Maps that accompany it are available for checkout by Georgetown students, faculty and staff for use on Georgetown campus computers. Windows only. Please see Lauinger Access Services at the third floor circulation desk for checkout.
Access Services also circulates the GeoLytics software that contains U.S. Census data from 1970-2000. With this product, custom spreadsheets or map layers may be created.
