You can come to the  Interdisciplinary Research Collaboratory to access our extensive collections of GIS data and scanned maps.  We have two network drives on our workstations:

The MIL directories contain more than 550 titles of scanned maps and geospatial data.  The data in the Public Open Data folder is in the Public Domain and can be used for any purpose.  UCSB-Only Data is licensed or otherwise restricted data--please check the metadata carefully and speak to an Collaboratory staff member if you have questions regarding the use of this data.  
Many of these folders are NOT described in UCSB Library Search.  

We also have a giant CD-ROM and DVD collection.  Use UCSB Library Search to find them.  Please ask at the Collaboratory if have problems identifying appropriate data for your project.
