GIS Consultations at the Libraries

The Libraries offer several GIS services to help any UMass student, staff, or faculty member with troubleshooting software issues, finding data, and conducting 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.
