About The Spatial Analysis Lab
The Spatial Analysis Laboratory is a research facility located in the Rubenstein School of Environment & Natural Resources (RSENR) at the University of Vermont (UVM). Lab staff are employees or students in RSENR, but our facilities are often shared with collaborators from other units (e.g., Geography Department, Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, and the USDA Forest Service Northeastern Research Station). The mission of the Laboratory is to apply appropriate techniques in GIS, remote sensing, and spatial statistics to problems in natural resource ecology and natural resources planning. The Lab specializes in biodiversity analysis, land-cover mapping, planning for conservation lands, and development of new applications for natural resource management. The Laboratory is supported entirely by grants and contracts for research.

The Spatial Analysis Laboratory occupies Suite 205 of the Aiken Center on the UVM campus. Computer hardware and software used in the Lab include the following:
