Mapping the Grand Canyon

Portions of the Grand Canyon gained protection as a United States national park in 1919. A century later, we are celebrating 100 years of Grand Canyon National Park history. 

As the national park marks its centennial, the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub invites you to explore the region's mapping history, which dates back over 150 years, as part of our Mapping Grand Canyon Conference, set to take place on the ASU Tempe campus, Feb. 28-March 1, 2019. 

Free and open to all, the conference promises a full two-day program of map-based storytelling, transdisciplinary thinking, demonstrations of state-of-the-art geospatial and cartographic techniques and engaging hands-on activities. (Check out the conference presenters.)
