2012 GISCI Map the GISPs Contest and other GIS Competitions

It's time to map the GISPs again. The contest is open to all (except the judges) and winners get money, GISP submittal or renewal fees waived, and everyone gets a "contribution to the field" point. I hope voting and viewing are not in Facebook this year. I found that very frustrating.

March 15 is the last day for students to take the GeoTech Center's online exam, the first part of the 2012 National Geospatial Technology Skills Competition.

MyCOE (My Community Our Earth) invites sustainabilty projects involving (lead by or participated in by) youth that involve geospatial perspective. Submissions due June 1.

All submissions will be reviewed and displayed, and later posted online for public viewing.  The most popular projects and others selected by our international committee of experts will be showcased during the Rio+20 United Nations Conference for Sustainable Development in June and will receive special recognition and prizes.

MyCOE is also proposing a GIS course for Rio+20 om June and wants your vote for the "people's choice" course. The details of the courses proposed and selection are on the SD-Learning page.
