U.S. and world geospatial data resources

The Geospatial Centre* collects and provides geospatial data across several geographical levels. The strength in the collection is in Canadian data resources, particularly in southern Ontario, however U.S. and world data resources are also available.

Most datasets from the Geospatial Centre can be accessed in person during reference hours. These data are provided for personal use for academic, research, and/or teaching purposes. Library staff will ask patrons to read and sign a data release agreement before these licensed data can be released. Other datasets, such as those that are available from external sources have also been included in the collection of links below.

*Data also available at the Musagetes Library, School of Architecture
