The UC Berkeley Libraries are excited to announce the release of GeoData@UC Berkeley with MapUp, a geoportal and geospatial data sharing application.
GeoData@UC Berkeley allows users to discover the library’s geospatial data holdings, preview geospatial data, create custom maps using only a web browser, and download geospatial data in a variety of formats. GeoData@UC Berkeley currently contains over 9,000 geospatial data layers from UC Berkeley, Harvard University, and MIT.
GeoData@UC Berkeley is part of a consortium of geoportals created by Tufts University, Harvard University, MIT, Princeton University, and the Massachusetts Office of Geographic Information (MASSGIS).
MapUp is an application developed by the UC Berkeley Libraries to allow UC Berkeley students, faculty, and researchers to store and share their geospatial data with GeoData@UC Berkeley users. Anyone with a valid CalNet ID can upload data to MapUp.
For more information about GeoData@UC Berkeley or MapUp, please contact John Ridener, GIS Specialist/Map Cataloger at the Earth Sciences and Map Library: firstname.lastname@example.org.
