Account Types

FIU GIS Center > Services > Account Types

FIU students or faculty engaged in GIS/RS-related learning, teaching and research can apply for a GIS Center user account. We offer the following types of user accounts:

  1. Student Account

    Student accounts are assigned to any student who is taking a class in the Lab or needs to do homework or project assignments that are related to GIS or Remote Sensing. When a student registers for a GIS or Remote Sensing course, their FIU account can be used to access the GIS Center’s computing network. Student accounts are generated automatically, based on the class roster.

    NOTE: Student accounts based on the class roster expire at the end of the semester. It is recommended to backup personal data from the shared drive before the end of the semester.

  2. Faculty/Staff/Graduate Student Account

    Faculty/staff/graduate student accounts are assigned to any faculty/staff or graduate student teaching or doing research using GIS or Remote Sensing techniques.

    To request a GIS Center user account, please go to the Division of Information Technology “AskIT” page at:

    • Log in to AskIT.
    • Search for Request a GIS account.
    • Fill out the request form with your personal information and reason for requesting an account, then Submit.
    • Students requesting access must identify a Faculty Sponsor and provide the Sponsor’s e-mail address. The Faculty Sponsor is then required to approve the Student’s access.
    • You will receive a confirmation e-mail, telling you that your account has been created and is ready for access.

    NOTE: Students who are registered for GIS courses need not request accounts on an individual basis. GIS Center Accounts will be automatically granted based on the class roster.
