Poster and map production

The GIS Lab utilizes two professional plotters for your poster and map printing needs.  We also provide support in customized poster/map production for a charge. The laboratory staff can help you generate well-designed posters or maps that meet your specific requirements. To help you start your poster design, we created two PowerPoint templates for general purposes: 48 by 36 inches and 24 by 36 inches.
