EEGS Student Lab

The Department of Environmental, Earth and Geospatial Sciences at North Carolina Central University is pleased to provide the faculty, staff, and students with a state-of-the-art Geographic Information Systems (GIS) facility housed in the Mary Townes Science complex. The center houses several computers, GPS equipment, a large-format plotter, various GIS software packages, GIS data on North Carolina, and knowledgeable staff to provide assistance to the 'Eagles' who want to use GIS in their research or just want to learn about this fascinating tool. In addition to equipment, software, and training, the department offers services such as project design and assistance with assimilating GIS, GPS, or remote sensing into ongoing projects. This interdisciplinary approach is the hallmark of cutting-edge research and the department aims to be an integral part of this approach and be your one-stop-shop for GIS software, training, and services.

GIS Training

The GIS center boasts of competent instructors capable of delivering instruction in a classroom or professional setting. DEEGS faculty have both classroom and professional GIS experience. In addition to instructor lead courses in GIS/GPS/remote sensing, the center also acts as a conduit for online courses that are available at ESRI's Virtual Campus. Access to these courses is free for all faculty and students at NCCU.
