Geospatial Resources in the Libraries

Welcome to the University of Washington Libraries' geospatial data resource guide. The UW Libraries has digital geospatial data for research and educational use. Our collection focuses on the Puget Sound and State of Washington areas, but we also have national and international datasets. Some datasets located or described here are restricted by license agreement and are available only to UW faculty, staff, and students. Other datasets are in the public domain.
