All—due to the way the holiday falls and the availability of workers this holiday season we will be scrubbing the servers and lab machines rather quickly. This work will be completed by Tuesday, December 18th. This means that all data in student accounts used for classes taken during Fall 2012 will be erased. In addition, all data saved on desktops on lab machines will be gone as well. Cleaning desktop profiles will actually begin tomorrow 12/13/12. Killing z:\drive folders will begin 12/17/12 and be completed 12/18/12. This is for class accounts not individual student accounts. This work is necessary to prepare for the Spring 2013 semester and the new class offerings that will start up in January. Instructors should notify their students if they deem it appropriate. Students should plan accordingly and copy their data if they want to keep it.
Welcome to the College of Social Science's GIS Laboratory at FSU
The mission of the COSS GIS Lab is to provide state of the art facilities and training for tomorrow's professional planners and geographers who will be using GIS technologies. In addition, the lab endeavors to offer state of the art equipment, software and facilities for research agendas throughout the college that have GIS components. Departments such as, Political Science, Sociology, Economics and Interdisciplinary Studies all have been supported by the facilities in the GIS Lab. Relationships with other departments such as Biology, Meteorology, Geology, Classics, Anthropology, Archaeology and others have been established and all these departments have taken advantage of lab resources and software. The College of Social Sciences in partnership with the Institute of Science and Public Affairs has made considerable investment in the areas of software, hardware and human capital to accomplish this mission. There are multiple GIS Lab facilities located in the Bellamy Building in rooms 320 and 035. Other facilities exist within the Bellamy building that are used by graduate students in Urban Planning, Geography and other departments.
