The Data Visualizaiton Lab provides faculty and students with a range of state-of-art tools, including advanced computers, spatial and statistical software, and 3D and VR analysis and display technologies. These facilities and the consultation services provided by the Lab, support a community of users drawn from a range of disciplines - from archaeology to conservation biology, environmental science to sociology - that together seek to understand and interpret the spatial patterns found throughout nature and society.


Walk-in Hours: Monday to Friday - 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Also, Tuesday evenings: 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Other times: Please contact us to reserve a workstation or to make an appointment with a staff member outside of walk-in hours.
