The Department of Geography and Geosciences occupies the second floor of the East Wing of Lutz Hall. The Department maintains a number of cutting edge technological resources for students, faculty and staff.
Lab 225 is equipped with 10 desktops running 1.8 GHZ AMD Athlon processors, and 512 MB RAM, and 5 Dell Optiplex desktops similar to those in 224. All departmental computers feature Windows XP Professional, MS Office 2003 and the latest version of ESRI ArcGIS Desktop. Both labs also feature permanently mounted projection systems for lectures and multimedia presentations.
Room 223 functions as a student study room and features two desktop PCs for general use, as well as an extensive library of Geography/Geoscience journals and books. The Geography Club has recently made great improvements to 223, furnishing it with sofas and desks to foster a community learning atmosphere.
Room 226 houses two Hewlett Packard large format plotters, capable of producing photo quality color maps and posters up to 60 inches wide, printed on glossy photo imaging paper.
The backbone of the department's computer network is a Dell PowerEdge 2900 server running Windows 2000 Server. This server is responsible for serving GIS data and software licenses to the Geography department and many other GIS users across UofL's campus, as well as providing a central platform for department network management.
