The University of Arizona has a vast ecosystem of expertise and knowledge, stored in the brains of 16,000 faculty and staff members. Many might say it's one of the University's biggest strengths. But our experts are spread across more than two dozen colleges, schools, programs, and other units. The new KMAP site, accessible to anyone, organizes the University's experts into a map, allowing users to see who has collaborated with whom. KMAP also has overlays that show where grant funding has gone and how many citations researchers have received. A search feature allows users to type or paste in keywords, sentences, or even entire articles and abstracts to see a list of colleagues with relevant expertise.
