On March 1, 2012, OCUL launched its newest service, Scholars GeoPortal . We encourage all Ontario university students, staff and faculty to explore the site and use our online tools to discover the fascinating geospatial data on offer.

Background

The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) has launched a new geospatial and health informatics storage and data discovery tool that, along with the social science data delivery system <odesi> , provides a portal to Ontario researchers to access numeric and spatial datasets.  The new service was made possible with support from the Government of Ontario through the OntarioBuys initiative.
