Getting Started with GIS: a LITA Guide / Eva Dodsworth
Earth As Art
GIS, or Geographical Information Systems, is a multi-disciplinary technology that can easily convert textual and tabular information into a graphical display of spatial relations.
Every year, thousands of students across the uWaterloo campus learn about and utilize GIS technology for map making, plotting survey results, and spatial analysis. The library plays a large role in education students and faculty on GIS by offering introductory and advanced workshops, as well as visiting classrooms and demonstrating how the technology can easily be incorporated into coursework.
If you have any questions about GIS, or GIS resources, please contact your Geospatial Data Services Librarian, Eva Dodsworth.
