From: Mr. Stace D Maples <stacemaples at>

Please forward to your Stanford lists! I’m particularly interested in
reaching CS and Med students!

GISDay at Stanford is the Stanford Geospatial Center's annual celebration of
spatial data technologies in research and teaching. This year, we are
focusing on building skills for Stanford Students and making sure that they
walk away with useable knowledge. Presenters will be here, all day, to
present their platforms and demonstrate what those platforms can provide
Stanford researchers, as well as socializing with attendees.

   - AP's Martha Mendoza will Keynote the event with a talk about how she
   used Geospatial Data and technologies to free more than 2000 people from
   "fishing slavery."
   - Collect swag from vendors and meet with them over the lunch/social
   event at the Hartley Conference Center at Mitchell Earth Science Building,
   - Have lunch on us (Lunch tickets will be distributed at the end of teh
   morning's sessions at The David Rumsey Map Center, so attendance is
   - Plan to stay all day to pack your Geospatial Toolkit with new ideas
   and we'll hand out this year's GISDay at Stanford 2018 t-shirts, at the end
   of the day, to our attendees! (while supplies last!)

*Please note that registration is currently restricted to Stanford
Affiliates. **If you would like to attend, but are not a Stanford
affiliate, please add yourself to the waiting list and we will release
unclaimed tickets the week before the event.*

"I have a map of the United States... actual size.

It says, "Scale: 1 mile = 1 mile."

I spent last summer folding it."
