The latest map in our series tackles one of the true world capitals of science: San Francisco and the surrounding area. With centres such as Stanford, NASA Ames, Berkeley and UCSF few areas on the planet have such a rich concentration of top research facilities. As Jo Scott shows in her map, SF is also home to numerous museums and public spaces for science, as well as the inevitable Nature office.

Jo has featured around 30 locations, with museums in red, institutions in green, universities in pale blue, publishers in purple, science cafes in blue and miscellaneous sites in yellow. She’s left off biotech companies and many private research institutes as there are simply too many. She’s also focused on SF city itself, but has included Stanford, Berkeley and one or two other major locations for interest. As UCSF and SFSU are campus universities, she’s listed every campus, but not every building within that. If you think Jo’s missed anything important, or you fancy having a go at adding all the biotechs, let us know in the comments.
We’re keen to build up a series of maps showing the scientific highlights of cities around the world. If you’d like to put one together for your own area, please do get in touch in the comments below. Making a Google map is really straightforward, and we’re happy to help.
