May the best map win

The historic Mapping Grand Canyon Conference, to be held at Arizona State University, Feb. 28 through March 1, 2019, will feature three student map competitions in the following categories:

Best Artistic Grand Canyon Map

Best Data Driven (static) Grand Canyon Map

Best Data Drive (dynamic) Grand Canyon Map

Students currently enrolled in a certificate, undergraduate or graduate program from any institution are invited to submit their original cartographic work to the Grand Canyon student map competition. Top place winners in each of the three categories will win a $100 Amazon gift card, a certificate of achievement and cartographic bragging rights.

As the Grand Canyon National Park marks its centennial, the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub invites you to explore the region's mapping history which dates back over 150 years.

Deadline to submit is Sunday, January 20, 2019. Visit the competition page for complete details.
