The ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub advances the use of geographically-referenced information by expanding access to and support for cartographic resources and geospatial technologies across the ASU community and beyond. 

Leveraging GIS (geographic information systems) and other geospatial technologies, the Map and Geospatial Hub makes a range of data, software and hardware resources available; offers a range of hands-on trainings and educational programs focused on using those resources; and facilitates transdisciplinary research collaboratons by building partnerships across ASU and outside communities.
