Finding quality GIS data can be one of the most challenging parts of doing GIS.

Below are some of the top resources for finding good GIS data online. You can also view longer lists sorted by type, by source, by topic, or by geographic region. You can even see sources just for San Diego, or data that isn't GIS data yet, but could be. If you find a good source that isn't on one of our lists, please please please let Mike know at mls003@ucsd.edu and we'll be sure to evaluate it and add it on so others can benefit from your work!
