The Data Lab (formerly known as the GIS Center) is a new teaching and research computing lab designed to foster collaboration and innovation across all campuses and departments. The Data Lab provides methodological and technological service and support for data reference, analysis, and visualization for both geospatial and non-geospatial applications.

The Data Lab consists of a computing lab, a collaborative space, and an instructional classroom. We offer a wide range of services to the Tufts community and are equipped with specialized hardware and software. The Data Lab is staffed with Student Lab Assistants, and is open for walk-in assistance and resources, group collaboration, workshops and classes, along with more advanced GIS and statistical consultations.
