GEOGRAPHY FACILITIES

Center for Geographic Learning

The Center for Geographic Learning, established in 1997, is located in the heart of the Geography Department on the fourth floor of the Humanities Building. The facility was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation with matching funds provided by the Geography Department and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Center combines a flexible lecture/discussion space with a 25-station networked computer lab. Through flexible scheduling, the Center is able to provide support for innovative instruction in a wide range of geography classes.

The Center for Remote Sensing of the Environment , established in 2007, is located adjacent to the Center for Geographic Learning. The facility was funded by a grant from NASA with matching funds provided by the Geography Department and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Center combines a 15-machine, high end teaching facility with a state-of-the-art research and image processing facility. A suite of remote sensing and image processing software are available.

 The department maintains a GIS research facility that includes files, application and web servers, graphics workstations, digitizers, scanners and large format printers. GIS software from ESRI is available through a site license agreement.  Remote sensing, image editing, and specialized statistics applications are also available.

The SEER Laboratory is dedicated to the integration of spatial analysis, predictive and ecological niche modeling, and spatio-temporal analysesPrediction of Bacillus anthracis
into disease ecology and public health research methodologies. The lab is fully equipped with high speed computer hardware, GIS and modeling software, and wildlife acoustic and VHF telemetry equipment to support projects aimed at addressing research on wildlife and zoonotic disease ecology and transmission cycles, wildlife/livestock interactions, vector/host/disease agent interactions, and spatial patterns of disease. The lab also works closely with the new Center for Remote Sensing. Image of Predicted distribution of Bacillus anthracis from a GARP modeling experiment.
