For those less familiar with MIT GIS Services:

We provide consultation to assist with the challenges that can arise with Geographic Information System (GIS) projects. We help people think through their project ideas and learn how to use the tools they need. We also help people find and use GIS data, available from diverse sources in a variety of formats. MIT GIS Services supports GIS in teaching and research in all disciplines at MIT. We help support a dynamic community working to solve exciting, real-life problems in many different departments.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) enable users to visualize and analyze spatial information in a dynamic, digital environment. It provides tools for integrating, querying and analyzing a wide variety of data types, such as scientific and cultural data, satellite imagery and aerial photography, as well as data collected by individuals, into projects, with geographic locations providing the integral link between all the data.
