Graphics Lab upgrades

Recent upgrades and changes

A new computer (GIS-4) has been setup in this lab with GIS + Adobe creative suite 5 and some other software. I have also put a bunch of different scale bars to be used for image capture. Unfortunately an old computer has died: GIS-3.

In the pipeline

  1. A DSLR camera that will be permanently attached to the copy stand, a macro lens for that camera and a computer that will control capture.
  2. A DSLR camera that will be permanently attached to the SMZ-U Stereomicroscope (binoc), and a computer to control capture.
  3. The SMZ-U currently only has transmitted light, we will get a reflected light unit for this.
  4. Get Arcgis 9.3.1 running on one of the computers for compatibility with older scripts etc.
