The Columbia Regional Geospatial Service Center has moved from its downtown location on Pecan Street to the third floor of the McKibben Education Building on the SFA campus.

The new facility provides more space, allowing for a larger training lab and expanded student work area.

"We are excited to be back on campus," PR Blackwell, Columbia Center director, said. "Our new location is a huge improvement in terms of space, connectivity and capacity, allowing us to better serve the region."

The new location will also make it easier to incorporate Columbia Center training with SFA's educational programs, such as forestry and agriculture.

The Columbia Center was established by Congress in 2005 to provide geospatial support for emergency preparedness, economic development and natural resource management.
