About

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

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

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

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