The Data Visualization Lab provides faculty and students with a range of state-of-the-art tools, including advanced computers, spatial and statistical software, and 3D and VR analysis and display technologies. These facilities and the consultation services provided by the Lab support a community of users drawn from a range of disciplines - from archaeology to conservation biology, environmental science to sociology - that together seek to understand and interpret the spatial patterns found throughout nature and society.

The Data Visualization Lab is located in Room 402 in Bata Library and is part of Trent Library's Maps, Data & Government Information Centre (MaDGIC). 

HOURS

The Data Visualization Lab is part of the phased reopening of the Library and is currently closed for walk-in services. Trent Library's Maps, Data & Government Information (MaDGIC) Centre has a number of remote options available to ensure continuity of Data Visualization services, including options for virtual consultation, access to Virtual Machines (VMs) and access to GIS and other Data Visualization software. Contact us for assistance with the Data Visualization Lab's resources or services. We will be monitoring our e-mail ticket system Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
