GIS Day Competition 2021

Terms and Conditions

Competition Overview

GIS Day is a global, annual event celebrating the technology of GIS. In the spirit of celebration, Locus together with the Auckland Council Geospatial Team invite our New Zealand GIS community to participate in a competition

One of our Locus team is a well-travelled millennial. On a pre-Covid international adventure he snapped a cheeky monkey pic. Your challenge is to do something creative with the monkey image you see alongside using GIS wizardry. There is a lot of discoverable information within the image that FME can help you extract. What you then do with that information to meet our ‘do something creative’ competition criteria is over to you! Perhaps you’ll turn that monkey pic into a map, or a drawing – surprise us! We want to know what you’ve done and how you’ve done it. Competition entries will be judged by Locus FME Certified Professionals. Winning entries must meet the ‘do something creative’ criteria, demonstrating an understanding and use of (but not limited to) FME
