GIS / Mapping Working Group

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) / Mapping working group is a network of CUNY students, faculty and staff who are interested in sharing methods and techniques, and finding support from others about ways GIS can be used to further research and teaching.

The GIS/Mapping working group is part of a GC Digital Initiatives program designed to create collaborative communities of Digital Fellows, CUNY-wide graduate students, staff, and faculty to meet regularly and share their areas of interest. The working groups provide a sustained, supportive environment to learn new skills, share familiar skills, and collaborate with both the Digital Fellows and the CUNY digital community.

If you are using Geographic Information Systems or other mapping technologies in your teaching and/or research, or if you are interested in mapping your data, or using GIS technology to analyze/visualize your data, we invite you to join the GIS/Mapping working group.

Peruse our mapping resource bank here:

For the Spring 2024 semester, the GIS/Mapping working group will meet in the Digital Scholarship Lab, Room 7414, every other Tuesday from 2-4 p.m. Check out our event calendar for the specific meeting dates. Please stop by!

Farewell and GIS Lab at Baruch

  • Dear GIS / Mapping Working Group,

    I have some news: Jan 31st will be my final day as Geospatial Data Librarian at Baruch. On Feb 1st, I will be the new GIS and Data Librarian at Brown University in Providence, RI. The Baruch library is going to fill the position, but it will take some time and the lab will remain closed. In the meantime, the resources the lab produced and published on the Baruch Geoportal will continue to be available.

    My Baruch email “should” remain active for another month. If you would like to stay in touch, my new info will appear relatively soon on Brown’s library specialists page.

    I have enjoyed working with all of you, and serving the CUNY GIS community these past 13 1/2 years. I wish you all the best in the coming year.

    Warmest regards,

    Frank Donnelly

    Dear Frank,

    Wow — CUNY’s loss is Brown’s gain. It’s good to hear that Baruch will fill
    the position.

    Thank you so much for all of the amazing work you’ve done over so many
    years to build geospatial programming across the CUNY system. Having taken
    one of your classes myself, I’m keenly aware of how much brought to the
    educational experiences you shared with CUNY faculty, staff, and students.
    We are in your debt! Best of luck to you with this next step.



    Wow Frank, congratulations!! That is great news, and though I’m sorry that
    CUNY will see you go, I look forward to learning about your new projects at
    Brown, and I hope we stay in touch!



    Frank, thank you so much for all you have done for us. And best wishes for an equally brilliant next stage up at Brown.  My pal and co-author John Logan has done a great many interesting projects that will only benefit from your talents.  Regards, John

    Thank you everyone! As long as my commons account doesn’t go away, I’ll continue to be a member of this group 🙂
