Annual Awards

IMAGIN annually recognizes GIS professionals that have contributed to the exceptional utilization of GIS throughout the State of Michigan.  The awards are given to GIS practitioners and/or organizations that exemplify how GIS can be used to create efficiencies in work processes, increase awareness of spatial conditions, or improve services for the citizens of the state.  

Nominations are now open for three award categories: Geospatial Achievement, GIS for Everyone, and GIS Innovation.  Nominations are due by Friday, May 21 at 5 pm.  Additional information about each award can be reviewed following the links below.
