beyond the Map
The Spatial Analysis Lab (SAL) teaches with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) across academic divisions and engages communities of practice at Smith and beyond. We promote spatial literacy and the creative processes in critical map-making, through the use of GIS and related technologies like Global Positioning Systems (GPS), remote sensing, and drones.
