Here it is! The schedule for GIS Day @Stanford, 2016. It’s a work in progress, but only small changes to times will be made, at this point. 

This year’s events will be split between two venues. In the morning we will meet at the Hartley Conference Center, in Mitchell Earth Sciences Building, and after lunch (on the Mitchell Patio), we will reconvene at The David Rumsey Map Center at Green Library.

Armchair Crisis Response: An Introduction to Mapping with OpenStreetMap and the HOT Task Manager

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

OSM GeoWeek calls on teachers, students, community groups, governments, private sector organizations, and map-lovers around the world to come together to celebrate geography and make maps with OpenStreetMap, the free and openly editable map of the world. The purpose of this event is to actively contribute to OpenStreetMap.

 This year, OSM GeoWeek will be held during the week of November 14th.

 OSM GeoWeek presents a great opportunity for students and colleagues alike to participate in something both meaningful and fun just before final exams. As you know, participants don’t need any special expertise, just basic computer skills. Please see


Missing Maps project - a joint effort founded by the American Red Cross, British Red Cross, the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and Doctors Without Borders (MSF-UK). The objective of Missing Maps is simple: to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world

 so that local and international NGOs, communities, and individuals can use the maps and the data to better prepare for and respond to crises affecting the areas. The project seeks to literally and figuratively put people, and their communities, on the map.

 Missing Maps takes an open, collaborative, and community-based approach and is powered by the enthusiasm and hard work of digital/remote volunteers both in the US and abroad. Please see


 Since the project started in 2014, over 13,500 volunteers have participated, collectively putting 20.5 million people on the map in OSM. We would love your help in helping this number to grow! To learn more about hosting a mapathon please
