Our Facilities


The CDHGI in the USF Libraries includes our research and digital collections development center, GIS project support team, the Digital Media Commons facility, and a number of lab and workshop spaces relating to 3D, imaging, visualization, and virtual reality learning environments.

We operate the latest hardware and software for 3D applications in digital science research. Our team of trained specialists and researchers have decades of experience and are the originators of 3D applications at USF, offering expertise and assistance to students and faculty wanting to incorporate 3D, GIS, and Virtual Reality applications for diverse research development.

Our faculty and staff are involved in numerous grants, projects, and research support efforts that are cross-disciplinary, and our projects provide internships, directed research, and assistantship positions for USF undergrad and graduate students.
