The UC Berkeley Libraries recently released GeoData@UC Berkeley, a
geoportal and geospatial data discovery tool. The libraries have also
launched the MapUp initiative, a program designed to make authoritative,
crowd sourced geospatial data available via GeoData@UC Berkeley.
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 is freely
available for public use.
MapUp is an initiative developed by the UC Berkeley Libraries to allow
researchers to store and share their geospatial data with GeoData@UC
Berkeley users. Data stored is curated and preserved for future
researchers’ use. OEHHA staff who have geospatial data they can
share are urged to contact Michael Sholinbeck, firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrange to have the data deposited in GeoData@UC Berkeley.
