What we do

The ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub advances the use of geographically-referenced information by expanding access to and support for geospatial technologies and cartographic resources across ASU and beyond. 

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

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 map interpretation, spatial analysis,  geospatial data management, cartography and visualization, and geographical storytelling 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.
