Location:  Hayden Library, rotunda (lower concourse/entrance level)

Available:  October 1 - November  11, 2011, during normal library hours

Description: For centuries, in order do spatial analysis, observe basic spatial patterns, or make a map of one’s study area, researchers needed to have cartographic skills or at least have access to printed base maps. The user-friendliness of modern Geographic Information Systems (GIS) interfaces has evolved rapidly in the past decade to become much more intuitive.

As a result, the number of researchers leveraging spatial tools and GIS in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences has grown exponentially during the past decade. Spatial resources allow one to visualize and analyze data patterns in order to explore topics in your branch of academia.

This exhibit focuses on the support of spatial analysis and map making by ASU Libraries through books, e-books, and the ASU GIS Data Repository. Information is also presented on self-paced training available to ASU Researchers and where one can learn to use a Geographic Information System.

Information about the resources highlighted in the exhibit can be found online on the companion LibGuide.  For further information, please contact Roger Knouff, Maps/GIS Librarian.
