This event, in its fifth 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.
Who should participate:
Individuals: Anybody who makes a map through their work or education.
Organizations: An organization that has worked on multiple mapping projects.
Maps on the Hill Event:
The map display event will be held on March 1st, in the Capitol Rotunda from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, with set-up time beginning at 9:00am. We request that at least one participant is present to discuss each map entry throughout the display event.
You can present hardcopy maps, interactive digital maps (you’ll need to provide a means to show it on a computer), or both.
The focus of the event is interesting maps or map technology projects that are applicable to a wide audience. While displays can be on any appropriate topic, presentations that may be of interest to decision makers are strongly encouraged. Marketing of specific product and services is discouraged.
Signups close February 5, 2016.
