Carleton University Library's GIS Team has created this nifty guide on How to search for GIS data.

GIS data isn't always readily available or in a format you'd prefer.

This guide gives you an idea of how to start the process.

Any questions, please email GIS@carleton.ca.

Our cartographic team includes: Rebecca Bartlett (GIS Librarian), Carys Carrington  (Data & GIS technician), Joel Rivard (Cartographic specialist), Sherri Sunstrum (cartographic specialist).
