Offering great info about GIS@UCSD including tutorials, GIS data, books, course-specific GIS guides and more, we hope this site helps you better incorporate GIS into your work. Come see us in the Lab or online at http://libraries.ucsd.edu/gis!
Here you will find a starting point for a list of GIS materials that are on the web. This site is intended for UC San Diego GIS users as well as the larger GIS community and is a collaborative project with librarians from within the University of California, Purdue Libraries, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and University of Tennessee Knoxville.

This very cool site and project " is a collaborative research and educational platform for traveling back in time to explore the historical layers of city spaces in an interactive, hypermedia environment". It uses Google technologies and explores the digital humanities in a geographic fashion. Check it out!
