Hello all,

This is an invitation to attend, and a call for participation in, this year’s GIS Day Open House at Stanford University in Palo Alto California (Mitchell Earth Science Building, November 14th, 1pm - 5pm).

Every year Stanford hosts an open house in celebration of GIS Day. The event, which is open to the public, includes a series of lightning talks given by faculty and student presenters on their work using GIS; a Map Gallery featuring student work across campus; a “Where in the world” photo geography contest; and (new this year) a geocache challenge.

If you are in the Bay Area and looking for something mappy to do November 14th between 1pm and 5pm, please feel free to stop by (bit.ly/gisdaystanford2012).

I am also hoping to solicit participation from local cartographers who may have some interesting work to display in our map gallery or present as a “Lightning Talk”. Lightning talks are 5 min presentations with about 2 minutes for questions. Work that was presented at the recent NACIS conference would probably be ideal!

There are a limited number of presenter slots so I can’t guarantee we can accept every poster or presentation idea but it would be great if we could include at least a few examples of high quality cartographic output for GIS analysis work.

If you are interested, please contact me via PM.

Regards,
David

I should add that for the map gallery, in addition to printed posters we will be running a digital slide show on a large LCD monitor so if you have a map to show but nothing printed we can still show your work.

We're wrapping up our virtual map gallery slide show today. Last chance to have your map project on display for the Stanford GIS Day event. If you have any examples of high quality cartography using GIS fell free to send me a JPG or PDF for inclusion.

And of course, for those of you in the SF Bay Area feel free to stop by and check out the lightning talks. More information here: https://lib.stanford...2-november-14th

Cheers,
