Statistical Consultation and Learning Support

The Library’s Geospatial Map and Data Centre (GMDC) offers a statistical consultation and learning service for faculty, students and staff at TMU. If you are new to quantitative research, we can help you gain knowledge and confidence in statistical thinking and data analysis. If you are seeking support for a research project involving statistical and/or spatial analysis, we can provide guidance with exploratory data analysis, data collection, organization, visualization, methodological approach, and interpretation.

Click here to book an appointment. Please be mindful that any consultation provided should be treated as an additional resource for learning, and is not meant to do your work for you (e.g. assignments, code writing, literature review, etc.). As enquiries often require time and assistance from multiple sources (data and mapping librarians, GIS and statistics specialists, Research Help Desk, and others within or outside the Library), we encourage you to be proactive and plan according to the stage of your research project.

Software support:
We offer learning foundations and general software support in Excel, R, SPSS, and ArcGIS Pro.

Faculty support:
We can provide guest lectures, class visits, and custom workshops for your students. For instructional support from the Data Librarian and/or Statistics Specialist, please contact
