The University of Texas Libraries collects and preserves the finest achievements of human knowledge in support of not only research and instruction needs, but also the exploration of ideas and intellectual innovation, and the Libraries' new Texas GeoData portal is a valuable resource for sharing its collections with the campus community. Through this portal the UT Libraries provides access to over 30,000 geospatial datasets from our collections as well as the shared collections of other universities for researchers, scholars, educators, and the general public. You will find a wide variety of datasets available for download including georeferenced scanned maps from the Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection, vector datasets developed from collections in the Alexander Architectural Archives, geospatial data from the Benson Latin American Collection, and more. All geospatial data from the UT Libraries' collections is georeferenced and can be downloaded in a variety of GIS compatible formats including shapefile, georeferenced JPEG, KML, and GeoJSON.
