Center for Remote Sensing and Environmental Analysis

The Center for Remote Sensing and Environmental Analysis (CRSEA), established in 2007, is located adjacent to the Center for Geographic Learning. The facility was funded by a grant from NASA with matching funds provided by the Geography Department and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Center combines a dedicated teaching laboratory with a state-of-the-art research and image processing facility. A variety of remote sensing and image processing software is available.
