Map Judging and Awards
Our map contest will feature awards for 4 categories.

Best Cartographic Design - Awarded to the map that artistically employs the elements of cartography without compromising use and functionality. Maps will be judged on fundamental cartographic principles including figure ground representations, visual hierarchy, color selection, typography, symbology, overall aesthetic appearance, etc. 

Best Analysis - Awarded to the map that is best designed to display the results of spatial data analysis and presents the information in an unbiased way, allowing the viewer to extract their own conclusions, utilizing the map as a tool.
Best Student Project – Awarded to the best overall student project.  Submitted maps may be cartographic or analytically focused.

Viewers Choice – Award chosen by the attendees for the best overall poster.
