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:
  1. To offer academic programs in support of Lincoln University curriculum, and
  2. 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.
