Duke University GIS Layers and Aerial Photography

The Duke University GIS Layers collection provide information on a variety of topics for the Duke community.  Current students, faculty and staff may access these below.  Ask questions or request access for non-commercial use by emailing us at askdata@duke.edu.

To download, click the desired format for any layer.  ArcGIS layers are compressed in ".zip" format and require GIS software capable of reading ESRI geodatabases or shapefiles, or MrSID format raster data.  Google Earth layers are compressed ".kmz" files. All vector layers use the N.C. State Plane coordinate system (linear units = feet).  Lambert Conformal Conic Projection, 1983 North American Datum (NAD83)
