Strengthen your community.

Libraries and museums use GIS to help students, researchers, and other visitors better understand the connections between places, people, and events. GIS uses the common language of geography to make those connections. New storytelling tools enable you to engage your public with compelling interactive narratives for outreach and education.

"Libraries have an important role to play in making sure that we provide proper stewardship and preservation of geospatial data."

Julie Sweetkind-Singer, Assistant Director of Geospatial, Cartographic and Scientific Data & Services at Stanford University



Today, there is growing amount geospatial information. Those libraries with GIS implementations can expand their role as public centers for information.


With GIS, seemingly unrelated information can be geo-referenced. This allows unique analyses that can produce new data and theories.


The US Library of Congress is interested in the long-term preservation of geospatial data. This will make it easily available to future generations.
