News, events, and announcements for the UD GIS community, Dec 2012/Jan 2013


  • Happy Holidays, our gift to you: 2012 Delaware Imagery from the USGS and DGDC!  (must be downloaded from a UD connection, on campus or VPN).  Downloading at “off-peak” times is highly encouraged.
  • In the end, Google did not grant our campus use of Google Earth Pro, but rather asked that individuals (faculty, staff, and students) who wish to use the software should directly submit a request here.  However, we are still planning on obtaining licenses for our two workstations in Smith.
