Welcome

The Data & GIS Lab supports the full data lifecycle in quantitative, qualitative, and geographical research at UCSD. We can help you find, use, work with, organize and manage geospatial, numeric and textual data in various formats.  The Lab provides access to and consulting on statistical & geospatial tools, including ArcGIS, R, Stata, Python, SPSS & SAS. The Lab also serves as the primary campus base for GIS services, access to GIS data and software, and the only place with staff to provide GIS assistance.

The workstations in the Lab have both statistical software and GIS software. To better serve you, the Lab contains reference and circulating books for both data and GIS. 

**Sign up for the UCSD GIS Listserv for information about new resources, events or other data and geospatial items of interest.
