GISCI Announces the 5th Annual Map Contest- 2016
GISP Map Contest Summary
his year’s contest will require an entrant to utilize the National Land Cover Database (NLCD) to tell a story about change.
Perhaps it will be about habitat loss, or maybe it will be about urban growth - whatever story you choose to tell, it must be supported by analysis of two or more years in NLCD and you must include the numbers in the map. We’ve seen a lot of pretty maps over the years; now we want to see some hard-hitting analysis to support the pretty picture.
