Laboratory for Applied Geomatics and GIS Science (LAGGISS)
LAGGISS is a nexus for new applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) science and geomatics within the physical, social and environmental sciences. The laboratory contains workstations with specialized software for GIS, remote sensing, spatial analysis and 3-D visualization (ArcGIS, PCI, ENVI, Geomatica). With private and public research partners, the laboratory supports original applications of GIS and geomatics for research projects examining the use of machine learning in automated environmental mapping, environmental change, and population health on continental, national and regional scales.
