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. For a comprehensive list of available software, or to inquire about capabilities within the GIS Lab, please contact the GIS Coordinator.

The hours that the GIS Lab is available and open to students varies based on quarterly scheduling and demand; in general the GIS Lab switches to longer hours in the latter half of an academic quarter. Please check this page for updates about scheduling changes from quarter to quarter, as well as to check for scheduled GIS Lab usage.

Frequently Asked Questions about the GIS Lab

Can I save data on the GIS Lab machines?

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. ​ ​

Can I have sticky foods and drinks in the GIS Lab?

No, and throw away your trash, please. ​

Can I use color printing?

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. ​

I have a concern not listed. What should I do?
