Data

For GIS Data sets see: Branner Library GIS Data Collection and Web Sites for Digital GIS Data.

Search SOCRATES — Stanford's Web-based Catalog for data sets on cd-roms or other media that can be checked out. For best results go to Socrates' expert screen: using an everything field, type "cd or compact or disk or disks or discs or disc or diskette?" AND the subject for which you want the data. For example for earthquakes you might search "earthquake or earthquakes or seismic or seismology" in another everything field. If you retrieve too much either use subject instead of everything OR add the place that you want, for example: subject California.
