The Geospatial Collection includes a wide variety of datasets in many formats.  Much of the collection includes datasets created by US Government agencies as well as state and local governments.  The collection also includes data from non-governmental organizations (NGO) or from commercial vendors, as well as from UCSB researchers.

Most datasets can be found through UCSB Library Search.  Datasets are stored either on CDs and DVDs or on computer network drives available in the Interdisciplinary Research Collaboratory.  Contact Collaboratory staff for access to CDs, DVDs, or data on network drives, and for any other data needs.
