Harvard Seeking Submissions for “Map of the Month” Contest Print E-mail
Written by Harvard Kennedy School   
Wednesday, 03 May 2017

The Innovations in Government Program at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation is pleased to announce today that we are seeking applications for the Map of the Month contest, a new initiative dedicated to recognizing highlighting the impactful work being done in the area of data visualization and mapping. We are seeking data visualizations and maps that illustrate, enhance understanding of, or solve a complex problem faced by the public sector. All units of government within the United States (federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial) and nonprofits may submit maps for consideration. Software vendors are not eligible, but may submit in partnership with a government agency or nonprofit.

Applicants will be judged by how well they meet the above criteria, and priority will be given to maps or visualizations that display quantitative information relevant to government agencies, combine data from multiple sources, have delivered impact, and/or cut across government silos.
Each month, the evaluation team will select a map from the pool of applicants, and the Map of the Month winner will receive recognition by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Ash Center with features on Ash Center web pages, a Certificate of Achievement, and a seal for use on promotional materials. The Ash Center will also give additional recognition for the best map of the year.

To submit a map for consideration, please complete the form HERE.
