The ASC can provide accurate, precise recording of cultural resources with 5 Trimble GPS units (sub-foot accurate Trimble GeoXH, 6000 Series GeoXT, Juno handheld) and 8 tablet computers, including 5 iPads. Projects in need of more precise measurements utilize the ASC's Trimble 5605 Robotic Total Station, with the ability to map resources with centimeter accuracy. The Trimble GPS units, the tablets, and the mobile software offer efficient work flow from data collection into GIS and other software and databases. Staff members have had extensive experience using these technologies during both surveys and excavation on prehistoric and historic-era sites throughout California.

The lab operates with current versions of Planetside's Terragen 3D modeling software, GSSI's Radan 7 GPR software, ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online software, Trimble Pathfinder Office software, and Adobe products including Illustrator, Acrobat, and InDesign software. The ASC operates additional computers with ESRI and graphics software outside of the GIS Lab for general use by staff and student employees or interns.
