Spatial Information Systems Lab

The Spatial Information Systems Lab conducts research and develops technologies that enable users to access, integrate, and manage spatial information. Spatial information is central in many human activities, including GIS applications in the Earth and other sciences and beyond to such areas as bioinformatics, neuroscience, government, and commercial areas.

The GIS lab primary purpose is to assist faculty and staff in the utilization of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The lab is located in the second floor, West Wing of the Geisel Library. The lab houses 6 computers for use on project and class GIS assignments with plotting and printing services as well. The lab utilizes a variety of data including but not limited to U.S. Census information, Digital Elevation Models (DEM), transportation (roads, railways, airports), environmental (vegetation communities, species modeling), archeological plots, as well as aerial photography and satellite imagery.

TELESIS Quality of Life (QOL) data warehouse and on-line GIS
The Quality of Life (QOL) project is a new, participatory approach to public services strategic planning, interagency coordination, and improved access by communities to regional data. The QOL concept is linked directly to the greater role and responsibility that community collaboratives now have in designing and improving social services to better meet the needs of their neighborhood constituents. QOL is a powerful, evidence-based system to measure the impact of grassroots delivery systems on risk and protective factors affecting the health and well-being of children, youth and families. In partnership with the RWBC and UCSD's Superfund Basic Research Program, TELESIS is leading a collaborative effort joining UCSD environmental sciences with Quality of Life indicators. GIS, on-line interactive mapping, and 3D visualization are fundamental compontents of this work.
