Virtual Rice Center

The Virtual Rice Center allows you to explore the center from your desktop. Students and faculty can collect data to run analysis on the features of the property — from the streams to the lake surface to coniferous vegetation. This technology provides access to the USDA Soils and the National Wetlands Inventory. Through this virtual laboratory, fieldwork is brought into the laboratory and researchers will have the ability to collect samples, query their results of data analysis and return to exact locations for long-term studies.
