About Us

Clark Labs is dedicated to the research and development of geospatial technologies for effective and responsible decision making for environmental management, sustainable resource development and equitable resource allocation. Since 1987, Clark Labs has been actively developing the IDRISI GIS and Image Processing software which has been used by professionals in a wide range of industries in more than 180 countries. 

In 2015, Clark Labs released the TerrSet Geospatial Monitoring and Modeling software which includes the IDRISI GIS and Image Processing tools, along with an additional constellation of software tools for monitoring and modeling the earth system. These include  the Land Change Modeler, Earth Trends Modeler, GeOSIRIS, Ecosystems Services Modeler, Habitat and Biodiversity Modeler, and Climate Change Adaptation Modeler. The IDRISI GIS and Image Processing tools are the foundation on which TerrSet is built and from where we will move forward to address the many challenges of environmental management.
