GIS Day @Stanford is coming, November 16th!

GIS Day @Stanford

GIS Day is an annual celebration of geospatial technologies, held on the Wednesday of Geography week. The Stanford Geospatial Center uses GIS Day as an opportunity to connect Stanford researchers to the cutting edge of geospatial technologies, services and applications through talks, workshops and other activities. This year, we'll have analysts, developers and scientists from DigitalGlobe, Mapbox, CARTO, NASA, The National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and more, talking about their work to leverage geospatial data and technologies using machine learning, drones, satellite imagery, and historical data! 

In addition to a full day of talks from some of the biggest players in location-based technology, we will also be hosting a week of workshops by DigitalGlobe, Mapbox, Google Earth Engine, The Spatial Analysis Center at Stanford and Stanford Libraries' R User Group!

Events will be held at a number of venues, including The Stanford Geospatial Center, Hartley Conference Center in Mitchell Earth Sciences Building, The Hive at Huang and Stanford's beautiful new David Rumsey Map Center at Green Library. 

So, mark your calendars and join us for five days of workshops, talks, games, prizes, swag and lunch on Wednesday, catered by San Francisco's Memphis Minnies!
