The Fifth Annual Library Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Mapping Contest

The Boston College Libraries are proud to sponsor the Fifth Annual GIS Contest for Boston College students, both graduate and undergraduate. Students are encouraged to present their GIS geospatial work, either coursework or research, undertaken at Boston College as part of a campus-wide celebration. Geospatial Research has grown dramatically in the past 5 years at Boston College and is now used as a research tool not just in the sciences, but in the social sciences and most recently in the humanities.

Prizes will be awarded to both the best undergraduate and graduate students at each level.

First Prize: $100 Amazon gift card
Second Prize: $50.00 Amazon gift card
Third Prize: $25.00 Amazon gift card

Submit entries to: http://bclib.bc.edu/form/gis-contest by April 2nd, 2014.

Winning entries will be displayed in the O'Neill Library on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 when the prizes will be presented. We ask faculty from all disciplines to encourage students to submit their entries. The first winning entry, "Boston College Tree Inventory" by Kevin Keegan was featured in a Boston College Magazine article. The work of recent winners resides in our Institutional Repository at the following url: http://tinyurl.com/giscontestwinners
