GIS and Remote Sensing Laboratory (GIS&RS Lab)


GIS and Remote Sensing Laboratory (GIS&RS Lab) was established as a teaching and research lab with specific mandate of geospatial technology applications. The Laboratory plans to include extension and consulting services.

GIS&RS Laboratory is one of the laboratories of Research Centre for Natural Resources and Environment. GIS&RS Lab is a well-furnished computer laboratory designed for training and assisting researchers and students.

GIS&RS lab is well equipped with software to help in the analysis and display of spatial information. Researchers also use the lab for compiling spatial and attribute data, interpreting geologic and geophysical data, and producing publication-quality maps and figures.

GIS&RS Lab also provides students with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) receivers to use in research and project works. The laboratories offer training in Geographic Information Science, Remote Sensing applications to the students and external public. The lab has a strong research agenda and is looking forward to implementing new and innovative teaching and research in geospatial technology.

 

GIS Laboratory Server

The main expertise includes the application of geospatial technologies in environmental management, geospatial database and data warehouse, geospatial data modeling, spatial intelligence, land use and land cover management, agricultural, food security and environmental resource management, soil and vegetation, climate and climate change risk management, urban and built environment, crime analysis and general geospatial intelligence. 

In addition, GIS&RS lab of UNILAK gives access to GeoServer which is an open-source software server written in Java that allows users to share and edit geospatial data. As it is designed for interoperability, it publishes data from any major spatial data source using open standards. Particularly, from this lab, you have access to current satellite images of Rwanda with good resolution which are accessed from Rwanda Basic Spatial Information Database System
