Computer lab facilities
The Department maintains three high performance computing labs. These labs are located on the 3rd (ES307) and 4th (ES407 & ES415) floors of the Earth Science building and are primarily used in lab and lecture instruction for GIS, Remote Sensing, Cartography, Hydrology, Landscape Ecology, and Spatial Statistics. The ES415 computer lab is primarily for MGIS (Masters of GIS program) graduate students.
Please note that labs must be booked by faculty members.
The computer lab located in ES 307 has 24 available seats for student learning. The courses that primarily use this lab are undergraduate GIS, remote sensing and cartography.
The computer lab located in ES 407 has 26 available seats for student learning. The courses that primarily use this lab are undergraduate and graduate level GIS, remote sensing, hydrology, and Spatial Ecology.
The MGIS computer lab has 24 dedicated machines for use by MGIS and graduate students only. Courses that are generally taught in this lab include Spatial Statistics, Advanced GIS and RS, and Programming.
The Department is host to state-of-the-art software packages in GIS, Remote Sensing, Cartography, and Statistics. Refer to the full suite of software applications that we currently deploy in our computer labs below.
