Maps in the News:  Mapping the Sochi Winter Olympics Medals

ESRI, leading supplier of Geographic Information System (GIS) software and geodatabase management, has created a Winter Olympics Live Medal Tracker map page.  “See the latest live medal county by country and find out who’s leading in the overall count, as well as the counts for each medal.  Click a medal to see how many each country has won.”

Ball State University Libraries provides access to ESRI GIS software on computers on every level of Bracken Library and the Architecture Library and Science-Health Science Library.  The GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) on the second floor of Bracken Library offers access to the leading GIS software and online GIS tutorials, datasets, online mapping applications, in-house GIS data, and one-on-one assistance from the GIS Specialist.

The GRMC is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:00 pm.  For more information, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
