Software and one-on-one help is for use by the MIT Community only. A DUnet public printer is set up in the GIS lab. If you go to the organisation unit module and edit one of the units, you can see a text field called Coordinates.

It can be fun to fool around with GIS -- you can use tools to transform data and examine the results, we can learn a lot this way. GIS is often seen as a technical, practical subject so that aims and objectives or intended leaning outcomes will specify some form of laboratory work. Setting up the GIS simply means storing coordinates for the organisation units you want to show on the map in the database. The essential idea behind a laboratory class is that, rather than being taught, students teach themselves and each other. In the US, such work is often referred to as a laboratory class whereas in the UK, it will usually be called a practical. Relate this use to the overall aims and objectives of the curriculum in which it is embedded. The lab instructor will set up an account for you for accessing GIS facility.
