Center for Viticultural Sciences
The mission of the Center for Viticultural Sciences and Small Fruit Research is to conduct research and provide service and support that will help the viticulture industry in Florida to become a viable industry (Florida Viticulture Policy Act, 1978).
Advances in both veterinary medicine technology and technique are the fuel firing the increased demand for well-trained individuals to work as veterinary technologists.
Remote Sensing - GIS Lab
The Remote Sensing/GIS facility in was established in 1996 with funding from NASA and USDA. This funding provided for acquisition of two NT workstations, a large-scale plotter, a digitizing table, and a full-time research associate to maintain the facilities, conduct research projects, and develop teaching materials. Since then, the Lab facilities have expanded and now include six NT workstations, two real-time GPS units, digitizing and plotting capabilities, and GIS and image processing software (ArcInfo, ArcView, Idrisi, Imagine, ENVI). The Laboratory is currently an active and fully functional facility housed in a separate room on the first floor of the Perry-Paige building. At least one undergraduate student assistant is employed in the Laboratory each semester. Student assistants are responsible for monitoring use of the Lab and for assisting on Lab projects and field work.
It is the mission of the FAMU Remote Sensing/GIS Laboratory to: 1) provide a state-of-the-art facility to support research and teaching activities within the College, 2) conduct research in the agricultural and environmental sciences involving spatial analysis and remote sensing technologies, and 3) provide outreach and extension services through teaching of GIS and remote sensing technologies and their application in the agricultural and engineering technology sciences.
