Cartography Specialty Group Student Guided Poster Competition

Type: Guided Poster
Sponsor Groups: Cartography Specialty Group
Organizers: P. Limpisathian
Chairs: P. Limpisathian


The Cartography Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers is proud to host its 2020 Student Guided Poster Competition, formerly known as the Student Illustrated Paper Competition. This competition is an opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to demonstrate their excellence in scholarly research and cartographic design. During this session, a panel of expert judges will score participants on their ability to: (1) Perform scholarly research (this could include identification of a meaningful research statement and execution of appropriate methods/analysis), (2) Produce a map which meets its intended purpose and demonstrates good understanding of cartographic principals and design, and (3) Communicate a well-formulated narrative to a broad audience (both verbally and through visuals). Additionally, for 2020 special consideration will be given to submissions that reflect one or more of the official AAG2020 themes, although not required for acceptance. Please join us, as students from a diverse range of backgrounds and areas of interest share with us their work which works to push and challenge the boundaries of the discipline.
