Geography and Map Reading Room Library of Congress
Maps and atlases were among the first items acquired when the Library of Congress was established in 1800. It was not until 1897, however, when the Library of Congress moved into its own building, that a separate Hall of Maps and Charts was created to house the growing collection of 47,000 maps and 1,200 atlases. The division now occupies an area of 90,000 square feet in the Library's James Madison Memorial Building. The area is specifically designed and constructed to accommodate a variety of cartographic collections, library functions, and a professional and technical staff of 58 persons.

The UVM Spatial Analysis Lab
The Spatial Analysis Laboratory is a research facility located in the School of Natural Resources (SNR) at the University of Vermont (UVM). Most of the staff in the Lab are employees or students in SNR, but our facilities are often shared with colleagues from other units, such as the Geography Department, who collaborate on our research projects. The mission of the Laboratory is to apply appropriate techniques in GIS, remote sensing, and spatial statistics to problems in natural resource ecology and natural resources planning. The Lab specializes in biodiversity analysis, land-cover mapping, planning for conservation lands, and development of new applications for natural resource management. The Laboratory is supported entirely by grants and contracts for research.
