Located at 990 W Fullerton, on the 3rd floor in room 3135, the GIS Lab is open to students taking Geography courses for research and completing classroom assignments. It is also available upon request, for collaboratory usage with other groups and partnerships within DePaul, and on a case by case basis to those outside DePaul who have arrangements with the Department of Geography within the rules and regulations of DePaul university.

Equipped with 18 high powered computers specialized for GIS usage, the computers in the GIS Lab have the latest in GIS software as well as other utility programs related to GIS work.

Frequently Asked Questions about the GIS Lab

Due to computer space concerns, the GIS Lab machines may be wiped after each quarter or when space quotas are used up, so students are advised to save files on external media or on their U drive.

No, and throw away your trash, please.

Printing is provided at cost to the department, so our ability to offer this service to students is limited. So please use other campus printers for color printing or for large printing jobs.
