The Integrated Spatial Dynamics (ISD) Laboratory opened in January 2007 with funding from a National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grant. The lab is designed to promote teaching and research in spatial analyses of environmental and ecological transformations, community change, and the dynamics of integrated human-natural systems.

The ISD Laboratory suite comprises a 20-seat teaching and research laboratory (‘main lab’), a restricted-access research laboratory for faculty-student research, a study room, a TA Bay, and offices for the Community Geographer. The main lab houses 20 Dell Precision 690 Workstations, each with dual, Intel 3.2 GHz dual-core processors, DVD+/-R and CD burners, and 24 inch Flat panel monitors. The lab has black-and-white and color laser printers, in addition to a HP DesignJet 815MFP combination wide format scanner and printer capable of scanning and printing up to 42 inches in width. The restricted-access faculty research lab houses higher-end workstations and specialized software for advanced spatial analyses.

Field Computing: Garmin GPS units and a field laptop capable of running GIS and remote sensing software, housed in the ISD lab suite, are available for authorized users to check out for field work.
