Message from the Director

he University of Balamand GIS Center is an exciting and stimulating place. 

Not only is it a place where people feel that they are at the forefront of knowledge, trying to expand their capacities and knowledge about places where they grew up and live, but also it is a place where they meet, communicate freely and learn from one another’s experiences in a very relaxed and informal way.

Of course, we are extremely serious about what we do, but we insist on making our multi-disciplinary learning experience as fun and as enjoyable as can be.

At the Center, we have adopted a “learning by doing” approach to our study of geography. After all, how can anyone enjoy this fascinating subject without interacting with his or her surroundings and appreciating them.

We live in a fastly developing world, in which technology advances on a daily basis. In this respect, we have to ensure that our staff and students have at their hands all modern tools in terms of software, hardware, remote sensing facilities, global positioning systems, and anything that allows them to enhance their spatial awareness and understanding.

Through the continuous support from the University, we have managed to keep up to date, and practice life-long learning.

We want to use GIS to improve ourselves, our surroundings, our country and our planet. In our hearts, we keep our motto…

            Dream it…Map it…Live it!!!

Drop by some time and let us show you what we do. You’ll like it!
