Research and Data Services produces a photographic map of downtown Cincinnati circa 1962

I joined Research and Data Services (R&DS) in August 2019 as a Graduate Assistant (GA).  R&DS is composed of multiple research and consultation labs across campus including the Data & GIS Collab, which is located inside the GMP Library (Braunstein 240). The Collab is designed to provide research and teaching consultations on the use of geocomputational software such as ArcGIS and QGIS.

To demonstrate some of the capabilities of our lab and to showcase one of the GMP Library’s special collections, we selected a collection of historical aerial imagery of Cincinnati and Hamilton County from 1962. The goal of the project was to digitize these photographs and combine them into a single mosaicked image that contains important geospatial information.

UC Libraries Research Services and IT@UC: Research Data Management Survey

In order for the University of Cincinnati Libraries (UCL) and IT@UC to provide the best research data support services, you are invited to participate in a brief survey regarding research data management, preservation, and sharing and High Performance Computing (HPC). We are interested in hearing from our faculty, staff, and students to learn what kind of data is being generated and how researchers are finding help in managing it.

Your participation will help us assess data management and HPC needs at the University of Cincinnati and will inform the coordination of services across campus, and specifically from UCL and IT@UC, to support effective data stewardship throughout the research life cycle.

The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Click on the following link to access the survey: UC Libraries Research Services and IT@UC: Research Data Management Survey
