The Geographic Information Science and Systems Specialty Group (GISS) holds an annual student honors competition. This session has presentations from finalists selected previously by judging of extended abstracts. The purpose of this competition is to promote scholarship and written and oral presentation by students in the field of GIS. Any paper that advances any aspect of GIS is welcome. We encourage papers on theoretical, conceptual, and methodological developments in GIS as well as on particularly innovative GIS applications.
