MIT GIS Services offers several ways in which you can take GIS with you on your travels over winter break. For those who want to collect data in the field, we have GPS devices that can be taken out for extended periods of time. Find out more about the GPS devices available and how to check them out so you can take them with you on your research projects around the world on the GPS page of our website.
