GIS Day 2017 Workshops!

Join Stanford Libraries in preparing for GIS Day ( Wednesday, November 15th) by attending a workshop next Monday or Tuesday on Skynet or CARTO.

Deep Learning + Satellite Imagery Tutorial with Drew Bollinger of Development Seed
MONDAY, NOV 13
1:00-5:00 PM (PST)
Branner Earth Sciences Library | 397 Panama Mall | Stanford, CA 94305

Skynet is optimized for feature detection from satellite and drone imagery. At its core Skynet is an application of Segnet, a convolutional neural network approach to semantic segmentation. We’ve built a suite of tools around Skynet to collect and manage training data, inventory trained models, produce useful vectorized data outputs, and to optimize cleaning of that data.¬†Drew will¬†walk participants through a full process of using deep learning to detect features in satellite imagery. We’ll pull our own satellite imagery and label data, do pre-processing, do training on a simple model architecture, and post-process to make our results useful for end users.

CARTO Builder: Your Swiss Army Knife for Maps on the Web with Mamata Akella of CARTO.com
TUESDAY, NOV 14
1:00-5:00 PM (PST)
Branner Earth Sciences Library | 397 Panama Mall | Stanford, CA 94305

Whether you are a novice or expert map maker, data scientist, or curious explorer, come to this hands-on workshop to learn more about CARTO Builder. We will go through the basics to get familiar and then take it to the next level and make some compelling maps. By the end, you will see how powerful the data to analysis to visualization paradigm of CARTO is and what it means for the future of YOUR maps on the web.
