This month has seen the launch of the Australian National Map Competition, part of the Australian activities for the International Map Year. MSIA has joined with SSSI to invite cartographers and map makers to present their work in a forum that will celebrate the maps, for both their beauty and intrinsic value as a powerful form of communication. Entries are welcomed for both the static and dynamic maps categories and can be made by individuals or organisations. There is also a dedicate student category, open to all levels from primary, secondary and tertiary. Entries to the dynamic category will also be displayed at the upcoming Mobile Mapping Technology symposium, were attendees will be able to vote in a Special Peers Choice award.
More information can found on the Australian National Map Competition page under a event section.
Please take the opportunity to spread the word among your colleagues and friends, it is a wonderful opportunity to promote and celebrate the wonderful work being done in Australia in the mapping sciences.
