2019 Avenza Award for Electronic Mapping Products
Avenza have provided the British Cartographic Society (BCS) with an award for electronic mapping products. The award will be made annually or exceptionally at other times as may be determined by the Council of BCS. It will be given for the most outstanding map presented for consideration.
Entries will be considered by a panel of judges, appointed by Avenza and the BCS Awards Committee. The panel will include a range of people from different areas of expertise. The panel will judge the quality and design of the map in relation to the purpose for which the map was produced.
The winning entry will be announced at the BCS Conference in 2019. The award comprises a crystal trophy to be retained by the winner and a certificate. The winning entry will be put forward for the BCS Award. Those commended will receive a certificate.
All entries will be exhibited at the BCS Conference and the winners will be published in The Cartographic Journal and on the BCS website following the Awards Ceremony.
For the purposes of the award competition the term ‘electronic mapping product’ is for mapping designed specifically for use in an electronic environment and includes the following:
• Electronic mapping enhanced using software like Avenza’s MAPublisher or Geographic Imager and in particular Flash maps made with the MAPublisher Web Author Tool
• Interactive web mapping, maybe driven by databases
• GIS projects created in software like ArcView or MapInfo
• PowerPoint presentation
