GIS & Visualization

Maps have always been used to visually communicate information about the world. The production of maps (and other geospatial visualizations) has multiplied with the emergence of the Web and new location-based data and software, usually referred to as GIS (Geographic Information Systems).

Besides data, software, and learning materials, UD offers a wide range of helpful GIS services to all academic and administrative departments and research centers and to faculty, staff, and students through Research Computing staff.

General data visualization has also accelerated, driven by some of the same trends as with geospatial data. Some examples of new visualization capabilities include dynamic graphing and charting and immersive visualization.
