The Environmental And Remote TecHnologies Lab is equipped with ten Dell Precision 650 Workstations served by a Dell PowerEdge 4600 server with approximately 350 Gigabytes of storage space. Output devices include an HP Designjet 755CM large format color plotter, as well as an HP Laserjet, and an HP Business Inkjet 2600 color printer. The Lab also has a Calcomp digitizing board, two Trimble GeoExplorer Global Positioning Sytem units, and two Dell Axim PDAs with ArcPad and Teletype World Navigator GPS units.

For Remote Sensing analyses, software includes Research Systems' ENVI. For Geographic Information Systems, the EARTH Lab houses the complete line of products by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI, Inc.), from Arcview 3.3 and all its extensions to ArcGIS version 9.1 (Desktop and Workstation).

A University site license for the ESRI product line allows anyone on campus to access this software, either through the Lab, or by installation on computers within individual departments.
