The GIS Support and Research Facility is a public computing facility established to support the use of geographic information system (GIS) technology at Iowa State University. The mission of the facility is to provide high level GIS research support for students, faculty and staff as well as to provide GIS education and outreach to the ISU community and the state of Iowa. The Facility includes a research lab (218 Durham), and teaching labs in 248 Durham and 526 Design. The GISF has an administrative home in the College of Design but serves the GIS needs of the entire university.
Lidar elevation data for the entire state was collected in 2020. Elevation products will be available starting fall 2021 through GISF image services and through the Orthoserver web viewers.
