USGS Launches a Mashathon

| |

The USGS has launched a competition to showcase The National Map data, products, services, and viewers in use.

A geospatial ‘mashathon’ is similar to “map galleries”, just digital mashup galleries.Submissions can be live or in ‘beta’, working demo or screenshots, maps or applications, in your favorite tools or in The National MapViewer. Submissions can be web applications, geoprocessing tasks, mobile applications, maps – anything showing The National Map data, services, or applications in use.

Submissions will be accepted until noon, May 12 (MDT) at http://ngp.ideascale.com/.  For more information about the competition see the Technical Announcement. The winning and recognized entries will be announced at the National Map Users Conference on Friday, May 13th.  Those interested in participating in the competition do not need to attend the conference to submit an entry.  Rules and information about the contest are here.

The USGS has also launched a twitter account for the National Map:  @USGSTNM.

Registration for the National Map Users Conference is free and seats are still available.
