Geospatial Services Center (GSC)

The UNH Library Geospatial Services Center (GSC) is staffed by GIS graduate interns, providing basic-level assistance with geospatial technology and help in finding data sources for analysis using geographic information system software.


    The GSC lab is housed in Room 337, on Level 3 (Main Floor) of Dimond Library, near but not part of the Academic Technology Service Center (ATSC) desk. Click here for the map.
