GISPUBLIC refers to a shared network drive that can be accessed when you are logged into the WU network either directly or via a VPN connection. This drive contains GIS data that have been shared with the Data and GIS Services (DGS) group over the years. This collection includes resources that can be used for mapping projects, spatial analysis, and other projects. All of these datasets have been obtained from outside agencies or groups and DS is not responsible for any errors or omissions that may occur. Your use of these data is limited to educational or research purposes only.
If you encounter problems accessing these data, please contact Bill Winston for assistance. If you have questions regarding data format, content, or provenance, consult the metadata that may be available either in the dataset's home folder, in a listing on this Lib-Guide, or via the "Item Description" which can be accessed in ArcGIS. Some of our more popular layers are listed below to help users find items of interest. Please contact Data Services if you have specific requests.
This collection is by no means exhaustive and there are many other sources for GIS data available. Consult our "GIS Data" LibGuide for more information.
This folder contains our collection of aerial imagery. We have an extensive set of historical images for St. Louis county and some of the images extend beyond the county boundary. Washington University is visible in most of the St. Louis county collections and there is a map document set up in this folder (AerialPhotos\Missouri\StLouis_County) to facilitate viewing those images.
