 GIS lab showing four computer workstations
The GLIER GIS laboratory was opened in the summer of 2006. It was funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and Ontario Innovation Trust (OIT). This laboratory is comprised of 4 workstations, 2 DELL serverd and all the latest GIS (ESRI's ArcGIS) and database software packages.

The primary function of the laboratory is to use GIS technology for environmental research of the Great Lakes, for example; monitoring movement of invasive species; mapping contaminants; air pollution and creating a unique geospatial database of GLIER research.

The laboratory is maintained by the Centre for Geospatial Analysis' staff and is open to GLIER researchers and their students. To learn more about this lab please contact Alice Grgicak-Mannion at
