The Center's staff and facilities support graduate and undergraduate students and faculty in many departments (Anthropology, Architecture, Classics, Biological Sciences, Entomology, Geosciences, Landscape Architecture and others) with a focus on the use of geoinformatics method and theory but including other areas such as visualization and animation. As a result, University of Arkansas students have a wide range of courses available to them including cartography, remote sensing, image interpretation, photogrammetry, surveying, and spatial statistics. These classes along with the classes offered through other units across campus, provide the students with more than 30 courses and a wide range of career options. Instructional computing labs are available in both Ozark Hall and the JB Hunt Center. In addition to classroom instruction, CAST supported facilities are used by students in both undergraduate and graduate research projects. The internship program in Applied Spatial Information Technologies offers students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in geospatial technologies.
Working with the UA Computing Services, the Center provides technical support for the campus ESRI and IDRISI site licences. Technical assistance is also provided to students and faculty for other software including ERDAS, PCI Geomatics, Definiens eCognition, Intergraph's GeoMedia and others.
