The CAMEL laboratory is located on the second floor of the Oriental Institute in Room 202, adjacent to the Research Archives. The office of the Director of CAMEL, Emily Hammer, is located across the hall in Room 207.

The laboratory offers the use of six up-to-date computers equipped with the following software:​

  • Windows 7 Professional
  • ESRI ArcGIS for Desktop (version 10.2.2)
  • Google Earth Pro
  • Microsoft Office Suite (including Word, Excel, Access, and Power Point)
  • Adobe Creative Suite (including Photoshop, Acrobat, and Illustrator--on select machines).

Scanning and Printing

The laboratory also offers the use of several flatbed scanners (slide and transparency capable, letter-size and A3-size beds) and a large-format (42”) Contex scanner and plotter for scanning and printing topographic maps and oversized materials. The large format scanner also handles mounted materials up to 1/4” thickness.

Oriental Institute staff and students can access the lab for scanning, printing, or research needs by visiting between 9am and 5pm, Monday through Friday or by making an appointment with a member of the staff. Visiting scholars should contact and arrange to meet with the Director or Associate Director to discuss the goals of their project.

CAMEL welcomes the involvement of faculty, student, staff, volunteers, and visitors in its current research and database-building projects.  We also welcome the opportunity to advise student and scholars on their own research projects and to collaborate with interested individuals or groups on laboratory-based landscape archaeology work.
