The Specialized Learning Environment in Geographic Information Technologies is equipped to prepare students for developing skills to conduct research and to learn applications utilizing GIS applications. The GIT-SLE features 19, dual 3.02 GHz, multi-threading, Pentium Xeon workstations which are supported by a wide-range of associated peripheral devices for data input and extraction. Instructors, researchers and students learn and/or demonstrate information and techniques using the facility's advanced, digital, multi-media system.
Each workstation supports a full compliment of ESRI and IDRISI GIS software applications together with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Macromedia MX Studio products for web-authoring and development. In addition to hardware and software, students, instructors and researchers have access to many datasets shared with the Social Science Data Library and the Temple-based Philadelphia Indicators Project. More data resides on the facility's dual 3.02 GHz Dell server.
