Ball State University Libraries Acquires New GIS Data for Indiana Counties

Ball State University Libraries Acquires New GIS Data

The Ball State University Libraries’ Geospatial Resources and Map Collection (GRMC) has up-to-date GIS datasets for both the Indiana counties of Henry and Delaware. The GIS administrators for those counties generously provided these rich datasets to the GRMC to assist the research and learning of Ball State students, faculty, and staff. Each dataset includes detailed GIS layers that are not available for download anywhere on the Web.

Available layers for both Henry and Delaware Counties include street networks, land use, zoning, fire and police station locations, schools, churches, parcel data, hydrology, flood zones, and much more. New six-inch resolution 2008 aerial photography and two-foot contours for Delaware County are included in this update. These datasets are for educational purposes only and are subject to terms of use.

For more information on accessing these layers, contact Angela Gibson, GIS Specialist, at 765/285-1097.
