Maps from the 2016 and 2017
IMAGIN Map Gallery



IMAGIN's Map Gallery Awards

Each year, as part of the Annual Conference, IMAGIN hosts the Map Gallery.  The map gallery categories have varied over the years, but the consistent focus of the map gallery is to provide a venue where GIS professionals can showcase their cartographic skills and abilities by presenting there map products to their peers.  A panel of judges critiques each map for various components that support the map gallery categories, and the conference attendees are also given the ability to judge the maps as part of the People Choice Award.
