GIS Help in the Libraries

The Libraries offer several GIS services to help UMass students, staff, and faculty members troubleshoot software issues, find data, and conduct vector/raster spatial analysis. We can help connect you to resources about related topics, like software licensing, data management, data visualization, photogrammetry and 3D model construction.
