Remote Sensing and GIS Related Resources around Stanford
Branner Library GIS Resources: Branner Earth Sciences Library and Map Collections, located on the second floor of the Mitchell Building, provides access for current faculty, students, and staff to geospatial data, digital map services, and geographic information systems (GIS). In addition, the library provides ongoing GIS reference and research consultation.

Department of Global Ecology: The Department of Global Ecology conducts basic research on the interactions among the earth's ecosystems, land, atmosphere, and oceans. The goal of this research is understanding the ways these interactions shape the behaviour of the earth systems, including ints responses to future changes. Funding for the Department of Global Ecology comes from the Carnegie Institution for Science, a private organization that conducts basic research for the benefit of humanity.

Earth Sciences GRID Lab: The GRID (Geo-Research, Imaging, and Design) computer lab, located in room A59 of the Mitchell Earth Sciences building, is available to students, staff, and faculty members associate with the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences. It provides computers, software, scanners, plotters, and other specialized devices for use in research and presentation.

Human Spatial Dynamics Lab: Research in the Human Spatial Dynamics Lab at the Stanford Anthropology Department draws attention to processes of spatial dynamics. It focuses on a range of issues that cut across conventional sub-fields, but are united by attention to the constitutive role of space in social affairs.

Stanford Spatial History Project: The Spatial History Lab at Stanford University is a place for a collaborative community of scholars to engage in creative visual analysis to further research in the field of history.
