We provide access to data from the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) and the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, Global Insight, Geolytics, ESRI, the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Geological Survey, and many other sources.
Our computing spaces provide software to help students and researchers work with spatial and numeric data. We are equipped with ArcGIS for Desktop, ERDAS Imagine, Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver), and more.
