The URISA Vanguard Cabinet has an exciting opportunity for your GIS students at the GIS-Pro 2020 conference. We are hosting our fourth annual Digital Competition, and I was wondering if you would be able to send out information about this competition to your students.
Here is the description for the Digital Competition:
URISA’s Vanguard Cabinet is proud to host the fourth annual Digital Competition to promote the GIS profession and attendance of young and emerging professionals at GIS-Pro 2020. The competition will be held virtually prior to the conference, and participants selected to present will receive a one-year URISA membership. The top three presenters will also be awarded a GIS-Pro registration and the opportunity to present their work in conjunction with GIS-Pro 2020.
The competition is limited to projects that utilize web and mobile platforms, such as ArcGIS Online, Tableau, Mapbox, or Power BI. Projects should showcase the visualization functions of these platforms while also demonstrating knowledge and proficiency in spatial analytics, cartographic design, and/or geospatial techniques.
To enter the competition, participants submit a link to their virtual project and include a 150 to 300-word project abstract detailing the project design, analysis, and implementation. Selected entries will deliver an ignite-style presentation via Zoom on their project’s use of an online visualization platform, geospatial technology, and spatial thinking. The presentations will be judged by a panel of URISA leaders, and based on the judges’ assessments, three presenters will be selected to present their work in conjunction with GIS-Pro 2020.
