Remote Sensing & Geotechniques Research Lab (HM 126)
The Remote Sensing and Geotechniques Research Lab is a facility used in all of the upper-level geotechniques courses. Students working on funded projects or their senior capstone course often use this lab for their research as it provides the most stealthy workstations and associated equipment in which to work.
Two of the four workstations in the lab are comprised of Dell Optiplex 745 Minitowers (funded by Devon Energy Corporation), each with a 24" widescreen monitor and a 17" high-refresh rate monitor with shutter glasses for stereoscopic visualization. A large format digitizing tablet, donated by the Chickasaw Nation, is connected to one of the workstations.
The other pair of workstations consists of Dell Precision T3500s connected to both a 27" widescreen monitor and a Planar 26" Stereomonitor ideal for visualization and photogrammetric applications.
The lab includes one large format HP Designjet 800 plotter donated by Devon Energy Corporation. Specific software includes: 2007 Microsoft Suite, ESRI ArcGIS 9.3 (soon to be upgraded to 10.0), ERDAS StereoAnalyst & associated applications for ArcGIS, and the latest version of RSI ENVI 4. The lab is also equipped with one large format light table and one large format paper cutter. Map drawers are also in the lab for students to store and archive their mapping projects. The workstations are connected to the campus network.
