New Geospatial Services Center open in Dimond Library

March 7, 2013

We are happy to announce the opening of the Geospatial Services Center (GSC) in Room 337 of Dimond Library.

The GSG is available to help novice users of geographic information system (GIS) and related software, such as Google Earth. Students, as well as faculty and staff, can use the GSC to get started on a new project or, if already working on a project, to get basic level help in completing it. You do not need to be enrolled in a course to use the GSC.

Non-UNH patrons may also bring in a laptop with software preloaded and GSC staff will try to assist, though help for personal laptops is limited.

Users can seek assistance with the following:

  • Locating and downloading geospatial datasets
  • Integrating data into an existing GIS project
  • Helping manage files
  • Answering questions on basic software functionality:
    • ESRI ArcInfo GIS & plug-ins (available to UNH users)
    • Many open source GIS programs
    • Google Earth
    • ERDAS Imagine (available for UNH users)
    • Multispec
  • Making referrals for more in-depth help

A UNH ID is required to use center workstations. Computers are available during hours when the GSC is open, though users may bring their own laptops. Books in the GSC may be browsed when it is open.

Two advanced undergraduate peer tutors are available part time.

Peer tutors are scheduled for the following hours during spring semester:

  • Tuesday: 9-11 AM; 3:30-4:30 PM
  • Thursday: 9-11 AM; 1-2 PM
  • Friday: 9 AM-12 PM

Although appointments are not required, there will be sign-up sheet posted outside of 337 to reserve a time slot.

Peer tutors have been sponsored by the NHView program, a federally funded program designed to make satellite imagery more available to researchers and the public.
