For more detailed information, and an abundance of GIS resources, check out the GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Libguide, linked to in the "Helpful RU Libguides" column on the left of this page..

Some GIS data, including Census TIGER files, is available on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM (search here for holdings). Additional information on GIS is available through the Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis at Rutgers." Check out the guide for further info.
