GIS Thematic Data


Thematic Data

Geographic Information Systems technology allows researchers and other users to compile layers of information into 'themes'. Thematic data layers are information data sets that have a common feature or attribute placed in the same layer of spatial data. This guide is arranged by general spatial themes. This guide is meant to be a starting point for finding spatial data that corresponds to a specific focus of a GIS analysis or map.
