New Resource - Go-Geo!


An online resource discovery tool which allows for the identification and retrieval of records describing the content, quality, condition and other characteristics of geospatial data that exist within UK tertiary education and beyond. The portal supports geospatial searching by interactive map, grid co-ordinates and place name, as well as the more traditional topic or keyword forms of searching. The portal is a key component of the UK academic Spatial Data Infrastructure.

To access Go-Geo! go to Library & IT or Library & Computing Tab in the portal. In the e-Library container click on the Databases link. On the Library Databases page choose Go-Geo! from the alphabetical list.
You will be re-directed to the UK Federation 'where are you from' institutional list. Scroll down to select University of Greenwich from the list before logging in again to the portal for authentication and then proceeding to the e-resource from the Library Databases page.
