The 8th Annual Maps on the Hill event, supported by the Utah Geographic Information Council (UGIC) and AGRC, will be held on March 7, 2019 from 9:00 am to noon (setup begins at 8:00 am). This event is an excellent opportunity for students and professionals to share maps, mapping tools, and mapping projects with elected officials, fellow practitioners, and the public.
Who should participate: Individuals: Anybody who makes a map through their work or education.
Organizations: An organization that has worked on multiple mapping projects.
Display Types: You can present hardcopy maps, interactive digital maps (you’ll need to provide a means to show it on a computer or monitor), or both. UGIC can provide electrical outlets (extension cords), tables, and easels, although bringing your own easel is encouraged, if possible. You can request these items on the registration form. We can direct you to an inexpensive resource for printing and mounting your map on a foamboard if you don’t have the tools to do it yourself.
The focus of the event is interesting maps or map technology projects that are applicable to a wide audience. While displays can be on any appropriate topic, presentations that may be of interest to decision makers are strongly encouraged. Marketing of specific products and services is discouraged.
