Digital Mapping and Research Laboratory

The "Digital Mapping and Research Laboratory" (DML), is primarily devoted to the success of graduate and undergraduate students using computer facilities in combination with faculty and staff assistance and collaboration with other students.

There are two labs really. The teaching lab is available for all geology majors when not in use as a classroom. The research lab is laid out for research with workstations located around the room and with specialized software as needed for specific projects.

Software available on computers as well as Microsoft Office Suite, ArcMap, ENVI, Vulcan, etc.

There are printers, scanners, digital cameras, portable LCD projectors, laptops, and a large format printer for posters. Much of the equipment is available for temporary check out by geology faculty and students as needed for classes, research, field trips and presentations.
