The department owns a workgroup server (Fujitsu-Siemens Primergy RX100 S3, 2 GB memory, 500 GB SATA RAID hard disk capacity, daily backup). Via the university network, 8 GIS workstations (with 20 inch LCD displays) are connected to the server. 4 GIS capable laptops complete the PC equipment.
Peripheral devices are two flat bed scanners (format: 11 x 17 and letter with automatic document feeder).  One 11 x 17 colour laser printer (automatic two-sided printing) and one letter colour laser printer are accessible from every workstation, in addition every computer is equipped with a black-and-white laser printer. Large format plots and scans (up to 60 inch width) can be processed at the faculty’s copy and printing centre or at the university’s computing centre.
Several digital projectors are used for lectures and presentations.
Based on a framework agreement, the complete portfolio of ESRI GIS software is used at the Chair of Landscape Ecology and Landscape Planning. Office software, graphics programs and statistical software are available on every computer.
For field work, field GIS systems with GPS functionality are used.
