Opportunities for Map Gallery Exhibitors

Participate in the Map Competition

If you would like your map to be considered for a Map Gallery award, read descriptions of the categories [PDF] to determine where your map product fits best. Read the judging criteria [PDF] to learn how entries are evaluated. The top three entries in each category are recognized during the Esri UC closing session. First place winners receive a plaque.

All map entries are eligible for the People's Choice Award. During the week of the Esri UC, attendees can vote for their favorite entry at designated kiosks in the Map Gallery.

To have your map considered for publication in the next edition of the Esri Map Book:

  • Select the appropriate box in step two of the Map Gallery submission form.
  • Leave your map on display for the Map Book team to review on Thursday, July 17. If you prefer to retain your map and not be considered for the book, please remove it between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 17.

Add Digital Content to Your Map Display

We are asking all 2014 Esri UC Map Gallery participants to include a QR code in their map display. The QR code will allow Map Gallery visitors to link from your displayed map right to a related website, including Flickr or Facebook and the like, a story map, the source data, or any other valuable information you want to share. For more information about QR codes, please review the frequently asked questions.
