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.

Please be sure to click on the TICKETS link, below, to RSVP for the event!

Moffett Field, CA
Dr. Beyer is a planetary scientist with the Carl Sagan Center at the SETI Institute. He carries out his research in the Space Scienceand Astrobiology Division (Planetary Systems Branch) at the NASA Ames Research Center. He studies surface geomorphology, surfaceprocesses, remote sensing and photogrammetry of the solid bodies in our Solar System--if you can stand on it, he's interested inwhat its like and how it got that way. Ross has loved maps since he was a kid, and combined that with his love of space to arrive at a career that involves maps of the worlds in our solar system. Ross has worked to help land things on Mars for more than a decade. He serves on the science teams of several active spacecraft, and most recently has been working to assemble maps of Pluto and Charon from last summer’s flyby of that system in order to help learn things about these mysterious worlds so far from our own.
