GIS consultations

GIS consultations (typically 30 - 60 minutes) are available to provide in-depth assistance to researchers from any discipline. A consultation can be focused on topics such as the following:

  • technical issues
  • searching for geospatial data
  • answering questions specific to your project
  • demonstrating features and techniques.

Consultations are facilitated by the GIS & Map Librarian or the Graduate Peer GIS Facilitator, depending on the focus of the consultation.
