Geoscience Information Services has an extensive archive of copyrighted 35-mm color slides and photographs taken by the GIS staff, the result of more than 50 years of travel in the United States and in many other regions of the world. The photographs document the natural and human world and are available in digital format, with distribution by CD-ROM or DVD.

The principal topics included are glaciers, volcanoes, Iceland, Hawai'i, New England, Galápagos Islands, global environmental change, other geographic areas and topics, fauna and flora, airborne and satellite remote sensing, and miscellaneous artistic photographs and images.
