Welcome to GIS at Tufts, a university-wide resource that provides information about GIS technology resources across the four Tufts campuses. The Data Labs, which are full-service computing labs dedicated to geospatial technology, statistics, and data science, maintain this site and serve as the central hub for GIS activities and services at Tufts. We offer a wide range of services to the Tufts community and are our labs are equipped with specialized hardware and software. The Data Labs are staffed with Student Lab Assistants and are open for walk-in assistance and resources, group collaboration, workshops and classes, along with more advanced GIS and statistical consultations.
