Center for Excellence GIS Lab
Center of Excellence GIS Lab
The Center of Excellence in Geospatial Information Science (COE-GIS) provides a comprehensive education in Digital Cartography, Geographic Information System (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and Remote Sensing which leads to a minor in Geospatial Information Science. The Center receives financial support from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)—Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
The primary functions of the COE-GIS are two-fold:
- To offer academic programs in support of Lincoln University curriculum, and
- To provide opportunities to Lincoln University faculty who wish to use geospatial information science technology in their research endeavors.
The COE-GIS is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware including windows-based workstations, mapping-grade GPS receivers, small-unmanned aerial systems (drones) and GPS and remote sensing software.
