GIS Services at the Robinson Map Library
While most geospatial data requests arrive at the library via the GIS Data Request Form, we can also accomodate in-person appointments for more in-depth research questions regarding the best sources of geospatial data needed for courses or projects.

* The Library is currently working on plans to offer a Students Helping Students GIS consultation service for in-depth questions dealing with GIS software and tools, analysis methods, and data integration. UW students with skills and knowledge in GIS will be available in the Robinson Map Library to provide appointment-based assistance. We hope to launch this service in the coming weeks.

We generally support:

  • Basic understanding of geospatial data types and formats
  • Where to find reliable sources of geospatial data

To make an appointment for geospatial data assistance, contact Jaime Stoltenberg:
Email: jstoltenberg@wisc.edu
Phone: (608) 262-1471
