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/

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.

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.

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop introducing geographic information system (GIS) technology with open source software. 

We'll be using QGIS, a powerful, easy-to-use, free and open source software (FOSS) platform.

Note: This workshop is free and open to both ASU affiliates (students, faculty, staff) and non-ASU-affiliates (general public). Reservation priority is given to ASU affiliates. Twenty (20) 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 install the following free, open-source software applications:

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:

Inspired by maps, this art exhibition explores the interconnections and contrasts between "Old and New."

Students in Ellen Meissinger’s Art on Paper class within the School of Art, part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, collaborated with the ASU Library's Map and Geospatial Hub to create an art exhibition inspired by creating unique art pieces on maps. This is the sixth year for this exciting interdisciplinary collaboration between the School of Art and the Map and Geospatial Hub.

The "Old and New" exhibit can be viewed during Map and Geospatial Hub open hours, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m (closed on university holidays). No registration required. 

The exhibit reception is set to take place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Nov. 26.
