GIS Service at the Purdue University Libraries provides support for spatial research and training across disciplines. Specifically, we support researchers and students on campus via:
- Geospatial technology training, technical assistance, and learning resource acquisition.
- Geospatial information discovery, data curation, and development of shared computing infrastructure.
- Geospatial research support, project planning, geospatial data synthesis, mapping, spatial analysis, and information dissemination.
At Purdue, GIS Day is a celebration of GIS research and application across desciplines. The libraries works with the GIS community on campus to organize this event in each November. GIS Day brings opportunity to learn about updates of GIS related research in different areas from Agriculture, Engineering, to Liberal Arts. Past GIS Day documents.
Geospatial information has been adopted in various areas of research at Purdue. The libraries works with different Purdue researchers to curate, visualize, and disseminate the information they have generated in their projects. Some examples include: Flood Map, Early American Periodical Illustration, Early African American Student Experiences with Housing Segregation in West Lafayette
