What is the Map and Geospatial Hub?

The Map and Geospatial Hub is ASU's library-based center for geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, geovisualization and cartography, and the associated technologies needed to transform geospatial data into powerful, value-added information. For us, maps are data; data are maps.
