St. Mary’s University Updates Winona GIS Lab
By Patrick R. Thorsell, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, Winona, MN

The Department of Resource Analysis (RA) of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota took full advantage of the Christmas holiday season and undertook a major remodeling effort in the "flagship" GIS lab on the Winona campus. New computer desks were installed increasing the capacity to 20 stations. The remodel also included a new teacher's station (document camera, DVD/VHS, etc…), new mounted video projector, new and larger video screen, and Tegrity technology (www.tegrity.com/) to capture classroom activities for learner replay at a later time.
