The geographic information system (GIS) lab is a computer lab with software that stores, manipulates, analyzes and displays any data that include a geographic location. Students and faculty use the GIS lab to create maps of study sites, assess changes in samples throughout an area of interest, model and measure landscape changes and view and interpret remote sensing and air photo data.
