What is the "Centroid"?

Who We Are

The Centroid is a geospatial resource and education center that serves students, faculty, and the greater community on all aspects of geographic information systems (GIS) and other spatial technologies.

What We Do

We offer geospatial and cartographic services for research and other projects in the community.


We provide information about geospatial courses at CSU and other training opportunities such as workshops, presentations, and other geospatial events for both on- and off-campus users.

Get Help

For geospatial assistance, contact the Centroid office directly. Email: gis@colostate.edu or call: 970-491-2774. You can also drop by the office (210 Morgan Library) though appointments are strongly recommended.
