The library has purchased a large variety of data: from tax assessor’s data for the Chicago area to satellite imagery of a river in Argentina and the locations of villages in the state of Himachal Pradesh, India. A full list of purchased data is on the program description page at http://www.library.illinois.edu/sc/datagis/purchase/description2014.html.
The deadline for first consideration is September 29, but the Data Services Committee will consider applications that come in later as long as we have funds available and can complete the purchase by the end of the fiscal year.
If you are interested in applying for the Data Purchase Program, the online application is at https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/9886260. If you have questions about the program or need help identifying data for your research, please contact Karen Hogenboom, Numeric and Spatial Data Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to connecting you with the data you need!
