Research Support

Taking advantage of the latest GIS/RS software, imagery and datasets, the GIC provides support for research activities to McGill students and faculty according to their project requirements. The GIC provides researchers with the assistance they need to conduct advanced GIS/RS research activities in various disciplines as well as offering ongoing project advice.
