The GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) is proud to announce its 2017 Map Contest.
This year’s challenge is to show us how GIS can be, or has been, used in either disaster preparation, response, or recovery. Scenarios can be real or imagined. More information is available, including eligibility and prizes, on GISCI Announcements.
The GISCI Outreach Committee extends its heartfelt apologies for not having 2016’s winning entries displayed at last year’s Esri User Conference Map Gallery, due to GISP Exam scheduling logistics. All efforts will be made to not repeat those mistakes this year.
The GISCI does have high hopes for a high number of contestants in 2017. After all, when it comes to disaster planning, are not GIS professionals considered heroes-in-waiting?
