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 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.
