Libraries' GIS Services

Getting Data

Libraries staff assist researchers often with identifying and using geospatial and tabular data.  We also provide access to a wide range of data resources that we have been collecting for several decades.  Major data acquisitions will be announced on twitter #ncsulibgis and #ncsulibresearch, and the GIS-ANNOUNCE email list.

Assistance to non-NCSU users will be provided as resources permit.

Hardware and Software

Access to many GIS software applications are available on computer workstations for faculty, staff, and students.  Software and apps from Esri, including ArcGIS, are available through NCSU's campus site license. 

Instruction & Assistance

On-site, individualized assistance is offered by appointment. Assistance via phone, chat, or email form is also provided.

Independent, online training is available to NCSU faculty, staff, and students through Esri E-Learning.
