We can help you learn how to work through various GIS tasks — basic software use, data management, analysis design, map design, and project development; however, it is your responsibility to complete your work. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with their faculty and/or TAs for assistance with, or clarification of, course assignments.
Appointments can be scheduled by emailing the GIS Coordinator or by filling out the GIS Services Request Form.
