Cartography and GIS Center

The Cartography and Geographic Information Science Center was established in 1964 as a Geography Department facility. Since 1970, its services have been available to faculty and graduate students of all departments of the University, and to the outside community. Prior to 2000, it was known as the Cartographic Services Laboratory.

Professional publication quality maps and graphics are compiled, designed, and produced in the laboratory's facilities as per client specifications, using the latest desktop mapping and illustration software, technology, and equipment. The Center also creates geographic and attribute files for analysis with Geographic Information Systems and is experienced in creating and maintaining interactive web-based mapping sites.

Services available include file translation to and from PC and Macintosh files; scanning; digitizing; map design and layout; presentation slides; graphics from spreadsheets; color and black/white prints; GIS files.
