Poster Categories

Geospatial Analysis

The progression from raw data to the completion of a GIS project involves gathering, manipulation, analysis, and display of geographic data. We’re excited to see the unique evolution of your geospatial journey.


Convey your geographic message aesthetically through graphics, artwork, and cartography. The possibilities are endless, whether creatively presenting your data or clever cartography. Use your imagination!


Show us your cutting-edge use of the infinite variety of new tools and techniques available to GIS professionals. Innovative analysis tools and digital products improve upon and frequently transcend traditional 2D map products.


Printed posters can be submitted up until the first day of the conference. Hardcopy maps for display must be no larger than 48"x48" and be brought to the conference to be displayed. Digital posters should be emailed for QR code generation. Online (URL) submissions must be publicly accessible. You MUST be attending the conference to be eligible for poster judging.

Digital Product Submissions

A simple export of the map or a screen snapshot in a common graphics format is desired (i.e., JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PDF). Only those posters submitted by October 10, 2023, will be included as part of the electronic display, and listed within the conference program.

For questions or comments about the Poster Session, send an email to

Please submit as early as possible. We look forward to seeing you and the results of your efforts this past year.
