The Environmental And Remote TecHnologies Laboratory provides support to Brown University's research and academic activities as they relate to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS).

This support includes not only a collection of data, software, and hardware, but also training and assistance in the use of GIS and RS. Training in GIS can be undertaken through one-on-one sessions, workshops/seminars designed to meet specific requirements, on-line courses, a semester-long course (GE132/ES190) and/or custom tutorials. Training in RS is through the courses Global Environmental Remote Sensing (GE133); Advanced Remote Sensing (GE233); and Remote Sensing of Earth and Planetary Surfaces (GE171).

We are available to work with faculty, staff, and students, regardless of discipline, in the utilization and application of these technologies.
