Abstract

This poster demonstrates the spatial distribution of computers suited for teaching courses which offer their students cutting edge software training, with the purpose being to determine the spatial distribution of computer lab resources on campus and to answer the question “does the distribution match academic needs?” To answer this question, spatial autocorrelation is utilized to show whether or not the locations of the labs correlate with the locations of classes and/or departments that use them. The results of this analysis could suggest potential improvements to the spatial distribution of WOU’s computing resources.
