NCSU Libraries maintains an archive of NCSU Campus GIS data, which, when combined with GIS data from Wake County and the City of Raleigh, forms a comprehensive collection of geospatial data for the west Raleigh campus area. In many cases, the coverage extent includes outlying areas such as Schenck Forest, the Veterinary Medicine campus section, Centennial Campus, and the Lake Wheeler Research Farm.
