WACOM tablets are stylus-based tablets that you can use to bridge the gap between digital geospatial data and human touch. While some classrooms around Yale have WACOM tablets, the Marx Science and Social Science Library has several tablets available for use at our computer terminals. Please see for more information about our computers. 

Marx Library also has a Perceptive Pixel Multi-Touch Display available for use. It provides a large touch screen interface that is ideal for people working with digital geospatial data in ArcGIS or equivalent software, and it provides a hands-on experience unavailable on most smaller computers. Please contact one of the librarians responsible for this guide (see the contact information on the right) for more information. Read more about Perceptive Pixel from Microsoft:


Many poster printers around campus can also print large-scale sheet maps. Here is a quick list of locations where large-format printing is available. Please note that the library is not involved directly with any of these other service providers.

If you would like to have a print map digitized for field use, please contact the librarian who manages this page (information in the right-hand panel).
