The Stanford Geospatial Center has a team of highly-trained staff and students that offer one-on-one free consultations to students, faculty, and staff, to support geospatial projects and research.

One-on-One Consultation and Instruction (Stanford students, staff, and faculty)

Stanford Geospatial Center staff are available for One-on-One consultations and project support.

Typical GIS support includes:

  • GIS project development & management
  • GIS software instruction
  • Data collection and creation
  • Data management
  • Analysis design
  • Spatial statistics
  • Map design and export

This service is intended to be instructional; our goal is to help users learn how to work through these tasks on their own, GIS staff will not complete project work for you.

GIS staff are available for reference consultations by appointment only. References are typically 45 minutes to an hour maximum. Please give us at least 24 hours’ notice before requesting an appointment.

Consultation appointments can be scheduled by emailing David Medeiros at davidmed @ Please include details about your project or GIS task when requesting a new appointment.

Note: new users (who are not already familiar with ArcGIS) are required to have taken our Introduction to ArcGIS workshop prior to setting up a reference appointment. But please feel free to contact us for a brief initial consultation at any time to go over your project, our services, and to gain access to the GIS lab. You can register for workshops online here.

Direct Project Support for Faculty

Stanford faculty are eligible for direct project support, in which GIS assistants produce basic analysis, or map layouts in support of time sensitive faculty projects without the need for in depth instruction.

We have a limited number of hours available for this purpose each week, so please contact us as soon as possible to set up an appointment to go over your project needs.
