The GIS Lab at the Environmental Studies Program provides GIS support to all members at Carleton. The Lab was created with the Spatial Analysis initiative at Carleton College in 2007. Check out the Spatial Analysis Website for GIS hardware and software available at Carleton, GIS data sources, learning resources, graduate programs in geographic information science and technology, and samples of work from the Carleton community.
The Lab recruits students mainly from the ENTS 120 (Introduction to Geospatial Analysis) course to assist providing support to the Carleton community in the areas of geospatial analysis, geospatial data creation and wrangling, web app creation, map making, and field data collection with GNSS (Global Satellite Navigation Systems). The Lab also collaborates with community members on projects that serve the interest of the communities and provide learning opportunities for the student assistants.
