Students and faculty can now access the Maps, Aerial-Photographs & Geographic Information Systems (MAGIS) Center and Laboratory at UH Mānoa‘s Hamilton Library.

The MAGIS Center, located in room 310, is equipped with three geographic information systems (GIS) workstations and a map viewing area. Staff members are available to offer assistance in locating GIS data, start-up assistance on GIS projects, and technical assistance with GIS software, especially the ArcGIS suite of products.

Through collaboration with Henry Wolter at the U.S. Geological Survey and Geography Professor Ev Wingert and his colleagues, the MAGIS Center has made Hawaii Historical Topographical Quadrangle Maps from 1910-1933 available online and for download as a geotiff, meaning they can be imported into a GIS.

Spring hours for the MAGIS Center are 1:00-5:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
