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.

We work in three core areas:

Resources | We’re a center for geospatial data, maps, geographic imagery, and the related geographic information systems (GIS) tools that can be used to bring them to life as powerful, value-added information.

Education | We design and deliver engaging programming to teach the community how to integrate spatial analysis, map interpretation, data management, and geospatial data visualization into their research and learning goals.

Collaboration | We draw upon our creativity, technical expertise, and professional networks to initiate, lead, and support transdisciplinary research projects across the university and beyond.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please fill out our Service Request form. We'll get back to you within two business days, but typically sooner.
