Esri FedGIS Conference
February 13-14, 2017 | Walter E. Washington Convention Center | Washington, DC
Your Maps Deserve an Audience
Maps are the heart of FedGIS and we want to show them off. Submit your map; one that will be printed and displayed in our gallery or one that we can highlight in our digital gallery. The map you submit for the galleries will also be considered for the next edition of Esri’s book series Mapping the Nation: Solving Challenges—from Local to Global—with GIS.
This year, the theme of galleries and book is how GIS is used to solve problems throughout all levels of government and across the world. Have you worked on a project that helped local governments during a disaster? Are you making maps that show the impact of climate change on a global scale? Are you partnering with other government organizations to address security threats? If so, your map would be a perfect fit. If you don’t have a map that reflects our theme this year, share the map you are most proud of and we’ll still consider including it.
We look forward to seeing your map in a gallery and book that inspire your peers and gets your work the recognition it deserves.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 16.
