NYS GIS Association Annual Awards Presentations
At the 2016 NYS GeoSpatial Summit, the NYS GIS Association presented six individual awards in four separate categories: GIS Champions, Individual Achievement, YouTube Sensation, and Lifetime Achievement.
Individual Contributions to the Profession (Annual)
Recognition is given for outstanding contributions to the profession over the past year. This is intended to recognize recent outstanding achievement in advancing GIS programs, projects, or initiatives, or producing innovative research or presentation material.
Recognition is given for exemplary support of the GIS profession and of the value of GIS technology. Winners are not typically GIS professionals but those outside the profession, typically in a management, supervisory or other key decision making or support role that have championed GIS projects or GIS technology within their organizations.
Lifetime Achievement Award
Recognition is given for longstanding contributions of members of the GIS profession who have had a significant impact on both the Association and the profession in New York State over the course of their careers, and who deserve special and separate recognition by the Association.
Award to individual or company that has garnered the most views for a video on the NYS GIS Association YouTube channel.
