Training and Events

Several opportunities for learning about geospatial technologies are made available through the Map and Geospatial Hub.


Every semester, we offer a series of quick (1-3 hours each), hands-on, skill-based workshops. They’re all completely open and free to the ASU community and general public.


Browse through our current workshop offerings listed to the right. Or, register for them directly on the Map and Geospatial Hub Eventbrite page


Do you have a group that needs training outside of the currently scheduled workshop offerings? Contact us to arrange an on-demand training/information session.
