SPAN aims to:

  • Facilitate research in social and physical sciences
  • Provide a University-wide set of computer-based tools and training to help researchers address such problems
  • Develop and promote a University-wide user base of GIS applications

The benefits of using SPAN in your research are:

  • Enhancing your data analysis
  • Incorporating data from other sources into your study
  • Exploring geographic patterns and phenomena in your research
  • Access to SPAN's wealth of knowledge
