MDL computing facilities & equipment

The Map & Data Library's facilities on the 5th floor of Robarts Library include a 20-seat computer lab and an 8-seat reference area for in-depth support. Both are currently closed for in-person visits, but the computer lab can be accessed remotely. There are also additional computers in Robarts and other libraries which have ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro installed.

When open, MDL has three scanners available for use: two flatbed scanners with platens of 8.5"x11" and 11"x17", respectively, and a large-format drum scanner handling maps and other flat materials up to 56" wide.

We also loan out a variety of GPS units.
