New updates to EarthWorks with more access to data

Over the past two months a team at Stanford Libraries have been working to add new features and resources to our geospatial discovery portal EarthWorks. EarthWorks is the place for users to find and access geospatial data at Stanford. With the recent updates, the amount of data users can find has more than doubled with access to over 70,000 resources from more than 20 institutions. Users can now discover scanned maps alongside Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data, index maps, census data and research data.

The ArcGIS Online mapping platform is now available to all Stanford affiliates

ArcGIS Online is an online, collaborative GIS that allows you to use, create, and share maps, scenes, apps, layers, analytics, and data. You get access to Living Atlas of the World, Business and Community Analyst apps, and Esri's secure cloud, where you can add items and publish web layers.

An excellent example of what can be done with ArcGIS Online is the Stanford Geospatial Center's Gaihōzu: Japanese Imperial Maps portal, which provides access to the most popular objects in the Stanford Digital Repository.

 

Over the last few months, we’ve been testing Single Sign-On (SSO) for providing access to ArcGIS.com, which we have licensed for the use of all Stanford affiliates.  This means that you no longer need to go through the Stanford Geospatial Center to get an account!
