In celebration of the incoming Geo Awareness Week (November 13-19, 2016), GIS Cloud launched the GIS Day Contest project challenge. The main goal is to promote innovative and meaningful use of the geo technologies by people with different backgrounds from all around the world. Dino RavniÄ‡, CEO and Co-founder of GIS Cloud, stated:
GIS Day contest is a great opportunity for us to get in touch with and support wide variety of mapping projects all over the world. We were overwhelmed with both the last year's interest and quality of the proposed ideas and winning projects, and we are looking forward to launching the contest this year too.
GIS Cloud will award the best project ideas with licenses, project support and promotion. The project ideas of those entering the competition do not need to be elaborated in detail, because main focus of the contest is to award an idea and help with its realization. The project contest is intended for people and organizations who want to do a socially relevant project in their communities using innovative geo technologies. Project application language is English. The contest is open from the November 10th to November 18th, 2016 (00:00h in the applicant's time zone). Results will be published one week after the application's deadline. Apply for the contest here.
