Maps on the Hill is February 25

Utah’s Maps on the Hill exhibit will be available for viewing on Tuesday February 25, from 9:00am to 12:00pm in the Utah State Capitol Building Rotunda. 

 

Maps on the Hill, a free event, is a great way to learn how current mapping technology is being applied to important issues across a wide range of disciplines including economic development, natural resources, infrastructure management, public lands and environment issues, efficient services delivery, and more.  Maps on the Hill is expected to draw over 35 map exhibits from all levels of government, private sector firms, and higher education. Utah’s elected officials and the public are invited to come learn about the various mapping projects from professionals and students.

 

Maps on the Hill is organized by the Utah Geographic Information Council (UGIC), a statewide user group of Geographic Information System (GIS) professionals, in partnership with the State of Utah’s Automated Geographic Reference Center (AGRC).
