Exploring and applying geospatial technologies to help create a better future

Working with the Centroid 

The Geospatial Centroid offers technical services in spatial analysis, cartography, interactive web applications, and remote sensing. We also offer grant/proposal assistance for those seeking to add a spatial component to their research. While some Centroid services are free, there is a fee for tasks requiring more time or expertise. Centroid staff and interns have a wide range of interests and skills. For inquiries, please send an email to: gis@colostate.edu.

Centroid in the News

Read about recent Centroid projects and activities in CSU’s Source newsletter.

Also, here’s a nice feature article about the Centroid in the CSU Magazine (Spring 2023): Not Your Grandfather’s Mapmaking.


Meet Centroid Staff and Interns every Wednesdays at around noon for “Centroid of the Week”!
Just come to the Centroid with your lunch and join in the conversation.

For geospatial technical assistance, it is best to set up an appointment by sending an email to: gis_help@colostate.edu. You can also visit the Centroid at 211G Morgan Library (located on the north end of the second floor) during its hours of operation. (Summer 2024: Tues-Thurs, 10:00-4:00)

Training Resources and Events
