Maps, Data & Government Information Centre

The Maps, Data, and Government Information Centre (MaDGIC) is an essential resource for students, staff and faculty who wish to integrate data about the spaces and societies in which we live, work, and play with their learning, teaching, and research at Trent. 

MaDGIC facilitates access to a world of research materials and technologies such as maps, atlases, air photos, geospatial and statistical data, government information, and specialized software and hardware to work with these materials in new and innovative ways.

Our skilled team supports teaching, research, and collaboration across the university and with Trent community partners. We offer services and instructional programming in GIS, data analysis and visualization, and research data management. We also offer technical support for software programs and tools used to find, collect, analyze, visualize, manage and share data.
