Behold the Leaders of the Pack! 2023 WLIA Map Contest Awards
We saw some amazing maps at our cartographic oasis during the 2023 WLIA Annual Conference! In total, 44 maps were either submitted virtually or delivered in-person! We are grateful once again to have the sponsorship of Ruekert & Mielke, the volunteer help of numerous Association members, and contributions from numerous others to bring the contest to life!
