2022 Award Nominations Have Closed

The NSGIC Geospatial Excellence Awards celebrate 30+ years of facilitating smart policy, partnership-building, innovation, and professional growth.

Just over thirty years ago, NSGIC was formed to provide a unified voice on geographic information and technology issues, advocate for states’ interests and support its membership in statewide initiatives. Through the decades, NSGIC members have led the way in the creation of intelligent maps, databases, and tools that enable public and private decision-makers to make better informed and timelier  decisions in a wide array of governmental areas. With the Geospatial Excellence Awards, we look to the NSGIC membership and beyond to recognize geospatial initiatives that embody the NSGIC spirit. 

Geospatial Excellence Award presentations will be held at the NSGIC Business Meeting during the 2022 Annual Conference, September 20, in Portland, OR.
