GIS in Action 2020 Conference participants will have an opportunity to present posters, about map topics, to engage in a completion. There will be prizes in poster categories.

The details for displaying posters entering are below:
Map Size: Posters can be any size, but larger sizes are preferred. The maxim poster size is 4 ft x 6 ft, either in landscape or portrait layouts. For larger size landscape will fit better.

Categories: Maps will be judged by conference attendees according to the following categories:

Cartographic - The quality of the visual display
Analytic presentation - Communication of meaningful patterns in data
Data Integration - Combining data from different sources
Student - Any enrolled in classes pursuing a degree or certificate
Display Only – Display at conference and not on ballot

Award: Awards will be divided amongst the winners of the categories after ballots are counted. The prize amount for the category will depend on how many are entered. The more entered the higher the overall prizes. There may be a second place prize if there are more than four entries.

Registration: Registration has two cutoff dates:

April 12,2020 around 5:00 pm for getting the slide image to be projected on large screen and the abstracts published in the program.
April 19,2020 around 5:00 for printing paper abstracts and to be on the ballot.

Pickup: Please pick up the poster after the conference to avoid loss of your creative efforts.
