Welcome to the Center for Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Analysis at West Chester University. The Center supports students taking GIS, computer graphics, remote sensing, population studies, business GIS, land use planning and several other courses taught through the Department of Geography and Planning. The Center also provides research services for Faculty, local agencies, businesses and the Chester County community to analyze spatial information relevant to their fields and interests. Our graduate students develop skills to solve environmental problems, locate optimal sites for new businesses, analyze crime patterns, support land use analyses, prioritize open space preservation efforts, model natural processes like storm water runoff and meet many other critically important challenges.

The lab in 220 Anderson also proctors the Excel Proficiency exam, required by many majors in the College of Business and Public Affairs. Please contact Esteban Romero, GIS Lab Manager at WCU to learn more or go directly to the Simnet Web Site to register for the test.
