Resource Spotlight: GIS Subject Guide

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Geotechnology
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Geotechnology

Milne Library, in collaboration with the Geography department, has created a research guide for Geographic Information Systems and Geotechnology.  This fast-growing, practical, and influential field of study is both evolving and diversifying.  It is used heavily in many fields to visualize data, including (but certainly not limited to) medicine, law enforcement and business.  GIS incorporates visual-spatial data, and  data in a way that allows the user to view and even manipulate information, ultimately providing those users with more context and a clearer understanding of that data.

Whether you’re looking for examples of resources that incorporate GIS, looking to learn more about this ever-growing field, or even looking to create your own data-infused-maps, this guide can get you started!

Earth Science Week

Earth Science Week is October 14 to 21, 2007.

To celebrate, have a look at some great Earth Science resources available from Milne Library and on the Web:
