Geology & Earth Science: Geospatial Collections

A guide for doing research in geology and Earth science.

Geospatial Collectons in the UCSB Library

The UCSB Library's geospatial collection consists of over 500,000 paper maps and 2.5 million air photos, as well as atlases, gazetteers, GIS data, CDs, DVDs and globes.  Although the collection's scope spans the entire world (and beyond!) on a variety of topics and in a range of scales, the main focus is on Santa Barbara and California, primarily in the geosciences.

For more information about geospatial data, GIS, or maps, consult the following guides:
