Esri ArcGIS Support

The Interdiciplinary Research Collaboratory supports and distributes Esri ArcGIS suite of software to the UCSB community. All UCSB students, faculty, and staff may install Esri's desktop software on their personal computers and have access to ArcGIS Online using their netID's.  Users from departments and units who contribute to the site license have access to all of Esri's desktop and server software, map and datapacks, and access to Esri technical support.

Collections

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.
