About Us


Develop the most advanced infrastructure for easy, comprehensive, and collaborative decision making to tackle complex problems.


Provide a flexible open software platform that integrates data, models and visualization to simplify and automate complex analysis.


With the use of sophisticated dependency mapping, ChainBuilder illuminates the interconnections between multiple, traditionally separated research efforts while overcoming format incompatibility issues between data-sets. The ChainBuilder’s design is capable of harmonizing the power of multiple computational models operating concurrently and enables the creation of graphical dashboards linked to models.

Arizona State University:

ChainBuilder is housed at the ASU GeoDa Center for Geospatial Analysis and Computation. The GeoDa Center for Geospatial Analysis and Computation develops state-of-the-art methods for geospatial analysis, geovisualization, geosimulation, and spatial process modeling, implements them through open source software tools, applies them to policy-relevant research in the social and environmental sciences, and disseminates them through training and support to a growing worldwide community.
