NCGE 2011 Map Gallery Contest
The 2011 NCGE Map Gallery Committee invites you to submit a map for display during the 2011 Conference. All GIS maps are welcome. The maps will be judged by a panel of peers, with the exception of the People's Choice Award, which will be voted on by the Conference attendees. The Map Contest will feature two award categories and the winners will be announced at the closing session on Saturday, August 6, 2011. Please review the minimum requirements and categories carefully when designing the content of your map entry.
Best Cartographic Design (Higher Ed., K-12 & People's Choice) - Awarded to the map that artistically employs the elements of cartography without compromising use and functionality. Maps will be judged on fundamental cartographic principles including figure ground representations, visual hierarchy, color selection, typography, symbology, overall aesthetic appearance, etc.
Best Analysis (Higher Ed., K-12 & People's Choice) - Awarded to the map that is best designed to display the results of spatial data analysis and presents the information in an unbiased way, allowing the viewer to extract their own conclusions, utilizing the map as a tool.
The three winners in each category will be awarded prizes along with the admiration of their peers.
