Maps on the Hill, sponsored by the Utah Geographic Information Council (UGIC) and AGRC, will be held on January 25, 2017. This event, in its sixth year, is a good opportunity for students and professionals to share maps, mapping tools, and mapping projects with elected officials, fellow practitioners, and the public. This year’s theme is “How to Tell the Story of GIS”. We hope to highlight how GIS improves quality of life, increases our understanding of the world, and helps us make better decisions.
New this year will be a competition, with a five-judge panel awarding honors to the best map displays. Bring your best and leave with bragging rights and some prizes!
Who should participate:
Individuals: Anybody who makes a map through their work or education.
Organizations: An organization that has worked on multiple mapping projects.
