About Our Facilities

Our center’s location in the Voinovich Center on The Ridges on Ohio University’s main Athens campus provides our researchers with geographic information systems (GIS) and database support essential to their work.

The center has three computer labs: the Environmental and Community GIS lab, the Redistricting Lab, and the Data Center Lab. Each lab houses a number of Windows XP computers along with two Windows NT servers, five Windows NT workstations, and three Dec ALPHA Digital Unix servers, as well as a variety of GIS packages (Arc/Info, Arcview, and Mapinfo). The Voinovich Center also maintains a full set of Census/TIGER GIS files (1:100,000 scale) and data from the U.S. Geological Survey (1:24,000 scale).
