Data/GIS Lab (HIL Room 310)

A view of the dual monitor workstations in the GIS Lab.

The Data/GIS Lab is found in Room 310 on the third floor of the HIL, and although ideally suited for Data and GIS work, is not limited to these activities.

The Data/GIS Lab has 2-70” display screens that can project the same screens or two-different screens as desired; however, instructors must use a laptop for presenting. The lab has 10 dual monitor workstations available, which easily accommodate 2 people as needed, and there is ample seating for researchers to work with their laptops if there is not sufficient workstation seating available for larger classes.

Standard software includes:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Windows 10
  • Microsoft Office 2013
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • SPSS Statistics
  • ArcGIS
  • Beyond 20/20 Professional Browser
  • MatLab
  • Minitab
  • QGIS
  • R/R Studio

Specialty Workstation

In addition to the 10 UNBF Libraries standard desktop workstations, the Data/GIS Lab is also home to 1 Bloomberg Terminal, which requires individual accounts. Both the machine and the accounts are managed through the Faculty of Business Administration.

The Data/GIS Lab is open to UNB researchers when it is not booked. To determine availability, check the booking calendar posted next to the door and be prepared to leave 10 minutes prior to any scheduled event. We ask that the following rules be observed:
