The Geography Department maintains a state-of-the-art mapping laboratory in the far west corner of the fourth floor in JRC. Twenty Dell OptiPlex workstations running the popular ArcGIS software from ESRI, in combination with the collaborative faculty effort to use the techno-resource effectively, give students a professional edge in preparation for career work or graduate studies. The Center for Applied GIScience is used from introductory courses through applied senior seminars and for spatial research for a variety of disciplines.

If you have a map project and would like our help, we'd be happy to assist. Just fill out the Mapping Request Form and send it to us.
