Deadline Approaching for MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards

RESTON, Va. – The May 15 submission deadline for the MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards is rapidly approaching. Sponsored by MAPPS, the national association of geospatial mapping and photogrammetry companies, this new annual awards program recognizes the professionalism, value, integrity and achievement of MAPPS member and associate member firms in specific projects.

“The MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards is a terrific way for members to recognize the high-quality of the geospatial work our profession performs on behalf of clients year in and year out,” said Kurt Allen, Vice President of Photo Science Inc., and current MAPPS President.

MAPPS has assembled a distinguished panel of five judges representing diverse aspects of the geospatial profession. They will evaluate project submissions in six categories: airborne and satellite data acquisition, photogrammetry/elevation data generation, remote sensing, GIS/IT, small projects, and technology innovation. Judges will select one winning project from each category as well as an overall winner who will receive the Grand Award for MAPPS Project of the Year.

The 2007 Awards will be presented at the MAPPS Summer Meeting being held July 16-20, 2007, at the Mount Washington Resort at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. For full submission guidelines, visit


MAPPS was formed in 1982 by a small group of U.S. photogrammetry companies as the Management Association for Private Photogrammetric Surveyors to represent the interests of private photogrammetric and aerial surveying firms. Since then, MAPPS has expanded in size and scope to become the only national association exclusively comprised of private firms in the spatial data and geographic information system field in the United States.

Current MAPPS memberships spans the entire spectrum of the geospatial community, including Member Firms engaged in surveying, photogrammetry, satellite and airborne remote sensing, aerial photography, hydrography, aerial and satellite image processing, GPS, and GIS data collection and conversion services. MAPPS also includes Associate Members, which are companies that provide hardware, software, products and services to the geospatial profession in the United States and other firms from around the world.
