URISA calls for government geospatial award nominations
The Des Plaines, Ill.-based Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) has posted the 2011 application materials for its Exemplary Systems in Government (ESIG) Awards. The awards recognize exceptional achievements in the application of geospatial information technology that have improved the delivery and quality of government services.
Applications may be submitted in two categories:
Single process systems — Includes examples of applying information system technology to automate a single specific process or operation involving one department or sub-unit of an agency that results in extended and/or improved government services that are more efficient and/or save money.
Enterprise systems — Includes examples of using information systems technology in a multi-department environment as part of an integrated process, yielding widespread improvements in the process(es) and/or service(s) involved and/or cost savings to the organization.
Applications must be submitted by June 6. Winners in each category will be recognized at GIS-Pro 2011: URISA’s 49th Annual Conference, scheduled for Nov. 1-4 in Indianapolis. Read more information about the ESIG Awards and review past submissions from winning systems.
