Map-making and Graphic Design

The Mapping Applications Resource Center specializes in geospatial applications, cartography, and graphic design.

MARC uses a combination of geographic information systems (GIS) and off-the-shelf graphics software, such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop to develop custom cartographic map products and graphic products suitable for a range of uses.

40 Years of GIS and Remote Sensing

Our resume is fairly extensive. Over the four decades of cartographic and research history of MARC, we have engaged in numerous projects covering a wide variety of topics.

Many Murray State University facilities and offices have partnered with MARC to develop mapping and graphic projects.

  • Watershed Studies Institute, Murray State University (link): MARC assists in the database management of regional watershed information related to the Tennessee River/Kentucky Lake, the Cumberland River/Lake Barkley, and the Four Rivers region which includes the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.
  • Murray State Police Department and Emergency Management: MARC was responsible for authoring the hard-copy parking maps.
  • Office of Institutional Effectiveness: MARC authored map products showcasing demographic and education data pertaining to regional and national trends in secondary and higher education.
