2018 WLIA Map Contest Winners

Fifty map entries were submitted and judged in the annual WLIA Map & Poster Contest. These maps were displayed for hundreds for GIS professionals to see at the 2018 WLIA Annual Conference in Elkhart Lake. Of these, fifteen were submitted by students, making for an exciting showing by both new and familiar faces for the Association. Much thanks to all the participants, judges, and volunteers who made this year’s contest a success!
