New GIS lab opens

Monday, Apr. 15, 2013

The ESS Department is pleased to announce the opening of a new campus facility for Geographic Information Systems teaching and research. Geographic Information Systems, or GIS software allows users to create maps, generate and overlay different kinds of spatial data, and analyze spatial patterns. GIS is used in fields ranging from anthropology to public health, sociology, marketing, and environmental studies and sciences.

Our new 16-seat GIS computer lab featuring ArcGIS 10 software is located on the second floor of Varsi Hall and is available to SCU faculty, staff, and students wanting to use GIS in their research and teaching. Please contact the ESS@scu.edu for scheduling and access.
