The Data/GIS Lab is found in Room 417 on the fourth floor of the HIL, and although ideally suited for Data and GIS work, is not limited to these activities.
The lab has 10 dual monitor workstations available, which easily accommodate 2 people as needed, and there is seating for researchers to work with their laptops if there is not sufficient workstation seating available for larger classes.
Internet connectivity is provided through the UNB network, allowing access to UNB online resources. Printing is done through the student network, using the print credit system, with print jobs collected at the back of the room.
The student workstations are positioned around the perimeter. Two tables with available seating for up to 12 are located in the centre of the room, enabling mixed sessions involving individual hands-on computer use, round-table discussions, or presentations. Total room capacity is 32, depending on intended use.
The Data/GIS podium is equipped with a Dell PC that is connected to a LCD TV with a presentation remote available. A flip chart or portable whiteboard are available upon request.
To connect personal laptops – please use the BARCO system. Directions for the BARCO system are available in the instructor podium.
A key to the instructor podium is available from Grace Martin in the Periodical Office - next to the Reading Room (453-4729 or firstname.lastname@example.org). If Grace Martin is unavailable, ask at the Research Help Desk on the main floor.
