GISCI Map Contest 2016

Yesterday, the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) announced their 5th Annual Map Contest for 2016 themed, A Visible Change.

Per the Contest Summary,

“This year’s contest will require an entrant to utilize the National Land Cover Database (NLCD) to tell a story about change.

“Perhaps it will be about habitat loss, or maybe it will be about urban growth – whatever story you choose to tell, it must be supported by analysis of two or more years in NLCD and you must include the numbers in the map. We’ve seen a lot of pretty maps over the years; now we want to see some hard-hitting analysis to support the pretty picture.”

Who may enter: Anyone is eligible, except those who are going to judge.
Submission Time Frame: March 1 to 31, 2016 – Email submittal
