FedGIS 2016

February 24-25, 2016 | Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Your Maps Deserve an Audience


Maps are the heart of FedGIS and we want to show them off. Submit your map– one that should be printed and displayed in our conference gallery or one that we can highlight in our digital gallery. Regardless of the format you choose, you’ll contribute to a map gallery that inspires your peers and gets your work the recognition it deserves.

The deadline to have your map printed at the 2016 Esri FedGIS Map Gallery has passed. However, submissions for the 2017 print and digital map book are still open.
