GIS and Remote Sensing Core Facility

The GIS and Remote Sensing Core Facility was created in 2001 in response to a  rapidly growing need for GeoSpatial Technology training and support in a variety of disciplines.

Purpose and Commitment

The Binghamton University GIS and Remote Sensing Core Facility supports the research mission of the university.  It fosters the educated use of geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing and global positioning systems (GPS) technologies for the development and execution of funded basic and applied research.

We are committed to a program of quality training and informed interaction, as well as to the provision of selected secondary data sources, through a variety of short-courses and one-on-one interactions with users seeking funded research. The facility aims to support and train users in a variety of GeoSpatial Technology methods, assist them in research and design, and evaluate existing data sets provided by users.
