GIS Users: The Library wants your data!

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. CDPH staff who have geospatial data they can share are urged to contact to arrange to have the data deposited in GeoData@UC Berkeley. We have already received some data from CDPH, and are hoping to add more.
