A productive week at Geo4LibCamp 2017

Geo4LibCamp is a hands-on meeting to bring together those building repository and associated services for geospatial data to share best practices, solve common problems, and address technical issues. We met at Stanford University for the second Geo4LibCamp unconference from January 30 until February 3, 2017. Nearly 50 attendees from 30 institutions participated in the main three day event, and about 20 attendees for the two day post-conference working sessions. The institutions were primarily academic research libraries -- Alberta, Arizona State, California State, Chicago, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State, Colorado at Boulder, Connecticut State Library, Cornell, Data Curation Experts, Mapzen, Michigan, Minnesota, Moss Landing Marine Labs, Nebraska at Lincoln, New York U, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Princeton, Purdue, Rice, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, UC Santa Cruz, UCLA, Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and Yale.

Personal Digital Archiving (PDA) submission deadline is November 25

How do we choose to document and share information about ourselves, our activities, and our communities? What happens to all of the data people create over their lifetimes? How can an information professional or researcher make sense of the various digital strands, remnants, and data that comprise a 21st century life?

Stanford University Libraries is thrilled to be hosting Personal Digital Archiving (PDA) from March 29-31, 2017. PDA 2017 will focus on current and emerging trends and scholarship in personal information management and personal digital archiving. The deadline to submit a proposal is Friday, November 25.

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!

Moments of Innovation is a virtual reality film that highlights 125 years of innovation at Stanford. A collaboration between the Stanford University Archives and three graduate students in Stanford’s documentary filmmaking program, the film seamlessly weaves together historical images and audiovisual materials from the Archives with 360° video footage of iconic Stanford locations and experiences.

Visualizing History in Rio de Janeiro

The 2016 Summer Olympics are drawing lots of attention to Rio de Janeiro. But while most people are focused on the current games -- as well as current events, politics, and health issues that might impact the games -- others have been spending their time delving into the history of this more than 450 year-old city. And Stanford Libraries' own Claudia Engel couldn't resist dipping her hand in either.

Hacking the David Rumsey Map Center (Part 1)

About this series

As part of the opening events for The David Rumsey Map Center at Stanford's Green Library I recently gave a talk about the various ways you can "hack" the David Rumsey Map Collection. I showed how you can make use of the David Rumsey Map Collection using a variety of Stanford University Library resources and services.

Over the next few weeks I will post a series of brief step-by-step "how-to" tutorials on making use of digital resources from the David Rumsey Map Center and Collection. For the most part, I will be highlighting the resources I presented in my talk.
