The MAGIS Lab is located in the Government Documents and Maps Department on the ground floor of Hamilton Library.

The lab has eight computers and an assortment of software for GIS work.

Lab Use

Lab access is for UH students, faculty, and staff and for GIS work only. If the lab is locked, please ask at the Government Documents and Maps reference desk, or ring the buzzer if no one is there, and we'll be happy to open the lab.

  • Login to GIS computers using your UH username and password.
  • Fill out the MAGIS Lab Registration Form each time you use the lab.
  • There is a folder labeled "Student" on the computer desktop, where you can temporarily store data. Anything added to the computer outside of this folder is deleted each day. Storing data in the folder is at your own risk. We recommend using a external USB hard drive or thumb drive to store and save your data.
  • We welcome small groups to work on GIS assignments in the MAGIS Lab. Please contact MAGIS staff for scheduling.

Contact Mahany Lindquist if you have questions or experience lab hardware or software problems.
