LAGGISS forms a nexus for new applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) science and geomatics within the physical, social
and environmental and health sciences. The laboratory is situated within the bilingual Department of Geography at the University of Ottawa. The facility is composed of ten state-of-the-art dual processor, dual monitor workstations, a two terabyte license and data server and speciallized software for GIS, Remote Sensing, spatial analysis and 3-D visualization. The lab is ergonomically designed to create a professional, innovative, healthy and stimulating work environment. With private and public research partners, the laboratory supports original applications of GIS and geomatics to pure and applied climate change, environmental, social, economic, and population health research on continental, national and regional scales. Through this transdisciplinary framework, the infrastructure fosters the development of new spatial analytical methods and applications that address pressing social and environmental policy issues in Canada. LAGGISS was constructed with funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI), Ontario Innovation Trust (OIT) and major contributions from the Faculty of Arts among others.
