|GIScience and Remote Sensing|
Research and graduate study in GIS, remote sensing, spatial analysis, and mapping sciences is focused on applying geographic techniques to solve substantive geographical problems in physical/environmental, socio-economic, and public health domains. The Department supports a GIS, remote sensing, and computer cartography laboratory running ENVI/IDL, ERMapper, ARCView, ARC/INFO and other GIS and image processing software on both workstations and networked PCs. The individual areas of emphasis are evident in the faculty listings and the listing publication. Recent research has been supported by NASA, NSF, EPA, CDC, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, and National Park Service and DOE, among others.
