Introduction

I (LdeM) have compile a list of useful links to online resources for geospatial visualization and analysis. The resources below are free to the general public or McGill students and faculty. However, please read the user agreement of each site/resource before sharing the data or publishing. The links are grouped into five broad categories.

  • Contact People
  • Software
  • Online Maps
  • Online Data
  • Miscellaneous Resources

Please edit as needed: add links as you find them; delete/update broken links.

These "extra mural" resources are complementary to the "in-house" resources compiled by Aman, which are listed on the Data Holdings page.
