Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

The GIS Lab

The geospatial services team operates out of the GIS Lab, located on the 9th floor of the Library / Tech building in rooms 951 & 952. Baruch students, faculty, and staff can meet with the Geospatial Data Librarian to discuss projects and get assistance, and can work independently on GIS or data-related projects in the lab with help nearby. CUNY affiliates are also welcome to inquire. Appointments are required (sorry, no drop-ins).
