Faculty employing GIS and remote sensing

Ecologists at Wyoming use a variety of tools from the Geographic Information Sciences, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, spatial statistics, and spatial informatics. The Wyoming Geographic Information Sciences Center (WyGISC) provides state-of-the-art facilities for these analyses and is closely linked with the Program in Ecology.
