Keynote Speaker: Dr. Fred Calef – “Keeper of the Maps” for NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory

Dr. Calef is currently the Geospatial Information Scientist for NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA.  He maintains the GIS base map containing MSL science data and he provides a geospatial reference for all data products related to “hard targets” (i.e. rocks) analyzed by the MSL rover.  He also provides geospatial products, such as geologic maps, traverse paths, and surface roughness, for planning to the MSL Rover Planners. 
Dr. Calef obtained his PhD at the University of Alaska in 2010, studying Mars crater distribution and ejecta, and was later a postdoc at JPL, joining the Lab full-time in 2012.  In addition to his background in Earth and Mars geology, he has extensive experience with Esri and other GIS tools.
