Software and tools

Several open source and licensed* GIS software and hardware tools are made available through the Map and Geospatial Hub. Many of these applications are already available for use on most of the public-facing computers found throughout the ASU Library system.

Esri Software

The Map and Geospatial Hub works closely with the ASU community to provide access to Esri software and resources. We’ve recently created an Esri Software LibGuide that provides information on how to access these resources. If you have questions, please contact the Map and Geospatial Hub and let us know how we can help!
