Map Gallery 2019

UGIC 2019 MAP, APP, and POSTER GALLERY AND COMPETITION

We know you’ve got skills, and NOW is your chance show them off at the 2019 UGIC Map, App, and poster gallery and competition in Midway, Utah.

Haven’t Registered for UGIC 2019? No problem. Take care of that little detail on our REGISTRATION page

 

UGIC 2019 would like to invite YOU to enter this year’s map, app, and poster gallery and competition.  Many of us do what we do because we love maps and this is your opportunity to show off your hard work to the greater Utah geospatial community!  There will be cash awards in the student categories.

THE CATEGORIES:

MAPS

  • CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT – Many of us work to transmit complex information to the public, and it isn’t easy! Show off your best citizen engagement map.
  • UTAH AS ART – Utah is beautiful. Show us your real cartography skills. No limits, but it must be of Utah – other geographies will be appreciated, but disqualified.
  • SMALL MAP – We often have to produce maps that are letter size but must transmit, clearly, efficiently, and accurately, an extensive amount of information. This is your opportunity to show your best 8.5″ x 11″ map. There are no limits to the map topic, but the map must meet the noted dimensions.
  • PROFESSIONAL MAP – This category hosts the best of the best where professionals show us what hey have put together over the past year.
  • STUDENT RESEARCH POSTERS – Not to be confused with a map, POSTERS depict research, methodologies, processes, and efforts generally undertaken via scholastic activities. Putting your best foot forward is important when explaining your research. Posters should clearly present the topic at hand, be readable (visible) from a short distance, and include maps and graphics (of course).

APPS

  • INTERACTIVE MAP – Exactly as it states. This MAP should be online, or otherwise digital, and should present information in a unique, clear, and engaging way. If you are submitting an interactive map, you need to provide a single 8.5″ x 11″ paper that contains your name, a title and description of your interactive creation, and a simple URL code (use bit.ly, or similar to create a simple URL – or a scannable QR code will work).

COMPETITIONS

  • BEST OVERALL MAP –  By simply entering a MAP or POSTER category, you are competing for the BEST. Keep that in mind!
  • THE STAN McSHINSKY AWARD – The man behind the legend, Stan Mcshinsky, has a category that is worthy only of his namesake. If you think you have what it takes, the creativity, the countless hours, the endurance to create a unique mapping work of art – bring it on. You don’t enter this category, this category finds you.

– WHEN, WHERE, & HOW –

Bring your hard copy maps and posters to the conference and submit them at the conference registration desk at the Zermatt Resort in Midway, Utah on Wednesday, May 8th.  If the map or poster is larger than 24” x 36” then you must provide your own foam core board or other mounting material. Online maps/apps: Bring an 8.5 x 11” or 11 x 17″ sheet with a screenshot and short description, including the URL and a QR code.  See example.  Note: there are websites that will convert a URL to a QR code for free.

We will make sure that you are familiar with the ribbon-style interface, project-based organization, key capabilities, and ArcGIS Pro terminology. Hands-on exercises will include:
    • Importing ArcMap documents into ArcGIS Pro projects
    • Organizing projects and working with project templates
    • Creating 2D and 3D features and modifying their symbols
    • Performing analysis using geoprocessing tools and raster processing functions
    • Creating map layouts, project packages, and web layers to share your work
  • We will spend the afternoon looking into some more advanced topics like the Arcade scripting language, Tasks, the Solution Deployment tool and more. We will also review some of the key new features of ArcGIS Pro 2.3.

(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Cartography (UGIC)

8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Brandon Plewe

(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Introduction to Python (UGIC)

8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Keaton Walker

  • Want to learn how to make your ArcGIS Pro geoprocessing workflows repeatable and efficient? If so Python is the tool you need. This Python course will start at a beginner level with a review of the basics of Python syntax and data types. We will also learn to use variables and basic python data structures like the list and dictionary. Then we will take a dive into functions and classes and in order to become familiar with the fundamentals of an object oriented programming language like Python.Once we have covered the basics we will work with arcpy, the Python scripting library for ArcGIS, to access data with cursors and organize geoprocessing tools into a program.  A stretch goal for the course will be learning to use the arcpy geometry objects and trying the ArcGIS api for Python.
    Previous Python experience is not a requirement, but some basic awareness of running ArcGIS geoprocessing tools will be helpful. ArcGIS Pro will be used and it should be installed and licensed before the course begins.

(Mon.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Introduction to UAS – Unmanned Aerial Systems (UGIC)

(Tues.) Pre-Conf. Full Day Workshop: Incident Command System and Emergency Management for GIS (UGIC)

8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Unified Fire Authority

  • Because GIS plays an important role in emergency response, it is critical for specialists to be familiar with the terminology, concepts, and roles within The Incident Command System. The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized approach to the command, control, and coordination of emergency response that provides a common hierarchy within which responders from multiple agencies can manage an incident effectively. Part of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), ICS now serves as a model for similar approaches internationally. The 100-level course introduces the basics of ICS, including its history, features and principles, and organizational structure; it also provides the foundation for higher level ICS training, including the subsequent courses covered in this training. ICS-200 is designed to enable personnel involved in an incident to operate efficiently and understand the supervisory roles within ICS. Both 700 and 800 cover NIMS-related topics with the former providing an introduction and the latter providing an overview of the National Response Framework. Certificates of completion from FEMA will be awarded to participants and can be used for credentialing to become a member of the state’s GIS response team.

(Tues.) Pre-Conference Full Day Workshop: Insights for ArcGIS (UGIC)

8:30 AM – 5:30 PM — Instructor: Bruce Cheney

  • Come to this one-day training to learn how to use Insights for ArcGIS.  Learn how to perform simple yet powerful geospatial data analytics. Explore spatial and tabular data together and get answers to questions.  Learn how to explore and analyze information to gain deeper understanding into what is happening with your data. Use these newfound Insights to create opportunity for impactful decisions and meaningful change in your work.
