Maine Impact Week — Wheatland Geospatial Lab Tour

April 14, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Wheatland Laboratory features a convertible lab that can be configured as one large lab with 24 workstations, or as two labs with 12 workstations each by lowering the motorized Skyfold wall.

Sustainably and profitably managing forestlands requires that forest managers monitor and predict changes in a wide variety of factors across forested landscapes over long periods of time. In the past two decades, significant advances in Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and methods of geospatial analysis have revolutionized forest management, and will continue to do so well into the future. Geospatial technology has become a new “cornerstone” for forestry professionals to provide and protect a wide array of forest resources on private and public lands around the world. As a result, all forest resource students must develop state-of-the-art skills in geospatial analysis.

Tours will occur April 14. Register here.

Contact Dan Hayes, Director of Barbara Wheatland Geospatial Analysis Laboratory at with questions.
