A last thing every Earth Science student needs is Earth Scientific Data. There are excellent, free sources of Earth Scientific Data both within the UvA and from the other sources. A good starting point is the UvA Geoportal. This server contains geographically referenced data for almost all UvA EArth Science fieldwork locations and numerous datasets for the Netherlands. It is also continuously updated with GIS tips and tricks. Log in credentials are available to students from the GIS-studio manager (room C4.204). Below, we have compiled a list of additional sources of widely-used Earth Scientific Data. Feel free to contact us with more suggestions for this list.
