Geographic Information System Laboratory

The Center is equipped with a geographic information system (GIS) computer laboratory that enhances the analysis of groundwater and surface-water quality, hydrology and watershed analysis, networking and three-dimensional analysis, and integrated stream assessment and aquatic habitat analysis. The Center also provides an ARCGIS software suite that allows for the realistic representation of naturally and humanly developed spatial features for assessment and planning applications.

The Center's GIS computer laboratory supports the research and educational activities of faculty and graduate students. The lab is equipped with a network of Windows workstations with connectivity to various printers and scanners. The HP800PS plotter and the HP Color LaserJet 5550dn printer allow principal investigators to produce high-quality color maps and presentation materials to support the Center's research efforts. The lab also has access to an A-size 1200 dpi scanner. The GIS lab maintains the large spatial databases and models developed from research.
