About

The Map and Geospatial Hub works in three core areas: resources, education, collaboration.

Resources

We’re a center for geospatial data, maps, geographic imagery, and the related software and hardware tools that can be used to bring them to life as powerful, value-added information.

Education

We design fun, engaging programming to teach the community how to integrate spatial analysis, map interpretation, data management, and geovisualization into their research and learning goals.

Collaboration

We draw upon our ever-expanding technical expertise and a collaborative professional network to lead and support transdisciplinary research projects across the university and beyond.
