GIS is used in many different areas of our campus, from administrative units to research centers and academic departments, across a wide range of disciplines. The GIS community consists of staff, faculty, undergraduates, and graduate students- from novice to expert. It’s many faces are commercial and open source software, desktop and web tools and those in between, and vector and raster data of all kinds. GIS-related campus resources are linked at right, and include information on education and curriculum, research, facilities, and more.
