Map Gallery

The KAM Map Gallery Contest is back for the 2014 KAM Conference. There will be prizes available for Analytic Excellence Map, Cartographic Excellence Map, Best Web Map Application and People’s Choice. We are hoping every member will submit a map for display. Members will vote for their favorite maps and prizes will be awarded at the Closing Session of the conference. No map is too big or too small. We encourage participation in the map gallery and hope ideas generated from this gallery will bolster future involvement and map creation. More information on guidelines and submission here.
