At A Glance

The Louisiana Atlas web site has evolved from its beginnings in the work related to the Louisiana Coastal GIS Network (LCGISN). The objective of this web site is to make available to the public data and information related to GIS in Louisiana, GIS data documentation, and data sharing on the World Wide Web (WWW). This page is currently maintained by the CADGIS Research Laboratory at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a lab supported by the LSU College of Art and Design and the LSU Department of Geography and Anthropology. The CADGIS Lab teaches computer-based courses and facilitates research in the areas of computer aided design (CAD) and geographic information systems (GIS).

We would like to encourage anyone using this web site to e-mail your suggestions, requests, problems, or concerns. All input is taken very seriously and greatly appreciated.

A Powerpoint presentation of Atlas and how to use it is available. This presentation was made at the Louisiana Remote Sensing and GIS Conference in April 2000.
