Map-App Design Competition

Entries in the Map-App Design Competition should demonstrate the use of GIS for specific applications and should illustrate the importance of the visual display of geospatial information in addition to overall user experience. Maps and Apps submitted for the competition will be displayed in the conference Map-App Gallery, and contestants are welcome to stand next to their entry to answer questions. In addition, there will be a special session where contestants are invited to interact with conference attendees.

Registered conference attendees will vote for their favorite in each of the following categories:

  • Student Map
  • Student App
  • Professional App

NOTE: Entries to the Map-App Design Competition will go through a submission and review process similar to that of other presentations. Maps should be submitted as a pdf file which the TUgis staff will print and display at the conference. Apps should be submitted as a URL that links to the content. Contestants may only submit one map and one app entry to the competition.

Submission Deadline

Submissions are due June 12, 2020.
