Based in the GeoHub in Davy 708, we provide geomapping services to students and staff.
We work with students providing advice on map production for coursework and projects. We teach different aspects of digital cartography, GIS, map interpretation and field mapping.
Shaun Lewin's expertise is in GIS and spatial analysis, whilst Jamie Quinn’s is in map design and cartography. If you don't know who is best to contact, email firstname.lastname@example.org and the most appropriate person will respond.
Spatial data collection and analysis
Advice and help is available on field data capture (e.g. GPS receivers and drones) and the possibilities for analysis (e.g., QGIS and ESRI ArcGIS), again through timetabled lectures and practicals, but also at an individual level.
We can provide advice on how to access the many digital spatial datasets available. The majority of this is free but requires individual registration – visit our Spatial Data Sources page.
Paper map collections
Paper maps covering topography, geology, soils and many other themes are held in the GeoHub (Davy 708). We have full Ordnance Survey coverage of Great Britain at 1:50,000 (Landranger) and 1:25,000 (Explorer) scales, and an extensive geological collection available for loan to staff and students.
For digital mapping of Great Britain, Digimap is a free resource. Find out how you register and access Digimap collections.
Find out what software is available to students and staff, including GIS software and non GIS mapping software.
Map/illustration design and production for staff
We provide a map production service for staff research, publications and teaching. We also produce most of the University’s
