Through the GAPP Center, Geographic Information System (GIS) and
Global Positioning System (GPS) technology is available to students and faculty through classes, internships, research and work experience from grant and contract opportunities.

The GAPP Center provides opportunities for students to learn and participate in the application of geospatial information-gathering, mapping, planning and problem solving to develop their expertise in preparation for careers in the fields of biology, anthropology, archaeology, conservation, and natural and cultural resource management.

In addition, The GAPP Center partners with local, regional and select international entities that need expertise in geospatial  information-gathering, mapping, planning, protection, and problem-solving through formal agreements and/or contracts.
