GIS facilities and support

Our GIS facilities benefit from the support of a dedicated technician who offers 121 practical support to staff and students to enable them to get the most out of our resources. 

We have access to GIS and Image Processing software including latest versions of ArcGIS and Erdas.  We hold a variety of digital data resources as well as subscribing to a range of data services such as Edina Digimap.

Within the Cartography office we also house a large archive of paper maps as well as scanning and photographic equipment for capturing data from hard copy formats.

We provide practical training in software skills and 121 support for students using GIS as part of their dissertations and course work.

We offer advice to researchers about data sources and support in developing research methodology, as well as helping with technical queries.
