It's upon us! The Fall 2017 semester has officially begun!
Your ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub is pleased to offer a fresh lineup of workshops and events for the new semester.
We're particularly thrilled to be partnering with the grassroots community art group Cut + Paste Phoenix in mid-September for the first-ever map-themed instance of their monthly collage meet-up: Cut + Paste Phoenix: Map Night!
We're also happy to be again be hosting our friends from the School of Earth and Space Exploration's Mars Space Flight Facility as they conduct a couple live demonstrations and hands-on workshop sessions with JMARS, an open-source GIS platform that allows users to retrieve, visualize, and analyze remotely sensed satellite imagery data for multiple planetary bodies, including Mars, Earth, the Moon, and many others.
The new workshop and tour lineup is growing! Be sure to reserve your spot at these upcoming sessions!
