The USGIF Awards Program annually recognizes the exceptional work of the geospatial intelligence tradecraft's brightest minds.

I've had the honor to present these awards to 50-plus individuals and teams, said Kevin Jackson, chair of USGIF's Awards Subcommittee. This program represents pride, excitement, accomplishment, recognition, and humility”that's what I've seen on the faces and heard from the voices of the awardees for the last 10 years. Please take this time to nominate your colleagues, peers, teammates, technologies, research, and programs in support of this awards program. We look forward to adding the 2015 awardees to our long list of outstanding achievements.
Anyone associated with the GEOINT Community may apply for or nominate an individual or team for an achievement award. Nomination forms for each category can be downloaded via USGIF.org. Forms are due March 27 at 5 p.m. EST.Â
