Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop introducing the new and improved geographic information system (GIS) technology software. ArcGIS Pro is the most recent professional desktop GIS software created by Esri. Whether you're transitioning from ArcMap or starting out using GIS software for the first time, this introductory workshop will familiarize you with utilizing ArcGIS Pro.

Twenty desktop computer workstations are available for this workshop. Before attending the event, please submit a service request to be able to authorize ArcGIS Pro.

If participants desire to use their personal laptops for this workshop, please submit a service request to get ArcGIS Pro installed and authorized to use on the laptop before the event begins.

Non-ASU affiliates are welcome to attend, however, they will need to have their own ArcGIS Pro license from their respective organization or personal account.

Please see the full calendar of Map and Geospatial Hub events.

You don't need to be a geographer to make a sweet web map to share with the world! Build amazing web maps and apps using ArcGIS Online!

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on the ArcGIS Online platform.

ArcGIS Online is Esri's cloud-based mapping and analysis solution. Through ArcGIS online, users can create interactive web maps, 3D web scenes, and dynamic web apps.

This workshop will introduce the range of functionality available via the ArcGIS Online platform, explain the simple process by which ASU users can easily access ArcGIS Online, and create various types of web-enabled geospatial content for performing spatial analysis, developing compelling geospatial data visualizations, and telling stories with maps.

There will be 20 workstations available. If desired, please feel free to bring and use your personal laptop.

Many people use Google Earth but only scratch the surface of its potential. In this workshop, we'll dig deeper to start doing more with it.

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on Google Earth.

Google Earth Pro on desktop is free and offers users more advanced options and functionality. Users can import and export geographic information systems (GIS) data in a variety of formats while exploiting the rich satellite and historical aerial imagery datasets available through the platform.

We'll be focusing on Google Earth Pro, but will also introduce the growing functionality of the web-based client of Google Earth.

Registration is free and open to the public, but seats are limited and priority will be given to ASU students, faculty and staff.

Please see the full calendar of Map and Geospatial Hub events.

Learn to georeference aerial photographs and help build free, open access, historic imagery collections for metro Phoenix and Arizona.

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this three-hour workshop session on georeferencing historic aerial photographs.

This is a different kind of "mapathon" session. Participants will work with a newly digitized set of imagery data — aerial photographs captured on behalf of the Arizona Department of Transportation in the 1950s–1960s for the purpose of mapping existing and future highway and interstate corridors. (Click here to learn more about the ADOT Highways and Interstates Aerial Photo (1959–1964) collection .)

Workshop participants will add value to these free, publicly available historical datasets by defining their coordinates in real geographic space, allowing them to be analyzed in relation to other geographically referenced data layers within any geographic information system (GIS) software platform.

No previous GIS or image processing experience is required. We'll be working through the entire georeferencing workflow within a free open source software program called QGIS.

Twenty desktop workstations are available. Participants wishing to work from their own laptops can pre-install QGIS at https://qgis.org/en/site/.

Registration is free and open to the public, but seats are limited and priority will be given to ASU students, faculty and staff.

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on printing geographical 3D models.

This hands-on workshop will explore three types of geographical 3D models thus far experimented with: (1) physiographic (topographic landscapes); (2) cityscapes (built environment meso-scale); (3) building and landscape architectures (built environment micro-scale). In all three of these instances, the primary data inputs will be publicly-available geospatial datasets.

We'll explore both web-based data extraction services that quickly provide appropriate data for 3D printing, as well as raw data that requires some basic pre-processing in a free, open source geographic information system (GIS) software application called QGIS.

Twenty desktop computer workstations are available for this workshop. Alterntatively, participants can perform the workshop activities using their personal laptop computers. 

Participants intending to use their own computers may want to pre-install the free software needed to follow along with workshop activities:

  1. QGIS: http://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
  2. Meshlab: http://www.meshlab.net/
  3. Makerbot Printhttps://www.makerbot.com/print/

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this one-hour workshop on how to access historical (and contemporary) topographic maps produced by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), going as far back as 1884.

Participants will learn about the various web platforms used for hosting and distributing free, publicly accessible topographic maps available in various digital, georeferenced file formats. Emphasis will be placed on using TopoView -- the best, easiest-to-use source of USGS topographic maps.

Workshop attendees will then learn how to import and use the scanned map images in a geographic information system (GIS) software platform with other types of GIS layers.

This workshop assumes no previous experience with GIS.

Non-ASU affiliates (members of the general public) are welcome to attend. Priority seating will be given to ASU affiliates (students, faculty, staff, alumni).

Twenty computer workstations are available in the lab (Noble Library, Room 105). Alternatively, workshop participants may opt to bring their own laptop. A maximum of 40 total participants may attend. Those bringing their own laptops will need to pre-install the following free software applications:

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for the Grand Map Giveaway!

The Map and Geospatial Hub will soon be moving to the newly renovated Hayden Library building. As much as we love all our maps, we unfortunately cannot take them all with us.

We have been working hard the past couple of years to determine which maps will be going with us to our new location in Hayden Library. We are therefore giving away hundreds of maps back to the ASU and broader metro Phoenix community.

Some creative map reuse ideas:

This event is free and open to the public!

The ASU community and general public are encouraged to come by the Map and Geospatial Hub during normal business hours to get maps from the "Take a Map" box anytime before the event.

Please see the full calendar of Map and Geospatial Hub events.
