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 3-D models thus far experimented with:

  • Physiographic (topographic landscapes).
  • Cityscapes (built environment meso-scale).
  • 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.

Participants will need to bring their own computers and pre-install the free software needed to follow along with workshop activities:

Join a Phone a Professor conference call to get to know the faculty members you’ll work with as a student — before you apply.

Featured calls for February:

MAC vs. InMAC for teacher certification with Elizabeth Frias
MAC and InMAC are two pathways for master’s degrees leading to teacher certification in Elementary Education, Special Education and Secondary Education. MAC is a traditional option for students to take courses and gain classroom experience. InMAC is designed for teachers working full-time on an intern teaching certificate. Elizabeth Frias leads curriculum development for both pathways, and will give an insider’s look into which format is right for you.

MA in Learning Sciences with Ruth Wylie
Discover how this degree can prepare you to design effective learning systems in a broad range of places that include but are not limited to schools. As the assistant director of the Center for Science and the Imagination and an assistant research professor in Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Professor Wylie provides an expert perspective on this program.

MEd in Higher and Postsecondary Education with Lindsey Dippold  
Professor Dippold develops coursework, instructs and serves as a faculty advisor for students in the Higher and Postsecondary Education program. She recently developed two study abroad experiences in comparative international higher education (London and Sydney) to allow master’s degree students to deepen their global understanding of the field.

During a call, you will:

  • Become acquainted with the faculty member from your program of interest.

  • Have an opportunity to ask questions about the student experience, academic expectations, career paths or any of your other burning questions.
