GIS is evolving rapidly, becoming more collaborative, more mobile and more social and we’d like to hear how your use of GIS is transforming everyday working practices to enable a smarter world.

This is your opportunity to be recognised; for your work, amongst your peers, at the UK’s biggest GIS conference. We’ll be showcasing the very best in GIS, from throughout the UK, and celebrating your successes.

Esri has captured five themes of GIS that encapsulate the technological and social trends that have pushed GIS over the web and onto mobile devices in recent years. How are you putting GIS into action, delivering digital transformation projects that have increased operational efficiency and improved services for customers and citizens?

  • Take this opportunity for your work to be included in Esri UK MD Stuart Bonthrone’s opening conference speech

Tell us about your work! Simply enter one or more of the five categories, from excellence in operational awareness, through to ground-breaking spatial analysis. Just scroll down and click through the categories below and fill-in the online entry form.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 7th April, 2017


Planning & Analysis

How spatial analysis leads to insight

Spatial analysis allows you to solve complex problems and better understand where and what is occurring in your world. It goes beyond mapping alone to let you study the characteristics of places and the relationships between them. Spatial analysis delivers new insights that help to shape planning and strategic decision making.

Entry Criteria

Have you undertaken analysis that has helped to shed new light on a situation or solved a critical business challenge? What insights has your analysis revealed and how has this new understanding enabled you to improve decision making? We want to hear what kind of analysis you have undertaken and how this has influenced strategic decision making or improved working practices.

Tell us how you are helping different departments, teams or co-workers to resolve complex issues, through the power of spatial analysis.

Operational Awareness

Monitor live data to manage operational awareness

Social media, sensors, GPS devices and live data feeds – they all generate vast amounts of real-time data 24/7/365. Now we have the technology to process this real-time data, giving organisations added insights into time-critical events as they unfold, the confidence that data is up to date and the agility to respond rapidly and correctly.

Entry Criteria

Are you working with large volumes of real-time data to help you make rapid decisions or take action on the move? What dashboards have you created to visualise and help make sense of this data and how is this helping your organisation to optimise your day to day operations?

We want to hear how you are monitoring and using up-to-date information in order to maintain operational awareness that leads to improved effectiveness and better decision-making.

Tell us how you are using GIS to help manage and co-ordinate different teams in the field from your customer service or command centre.

Field Data Collection

Keep office workers up to date with field data collection

Field workers can collect information on a mobile device from any location and send real-time updates back to the office. This keeps the central system of record up to date with the latest information from the field and saves hours of time inputting data. You can also see who is where and send new work requests to the nearest person.

Entry Criteria

Organisations across all sectors, are using out-of-the box mobile apps, drones and other devices to collect and update information in the field - saving time, improving efficiency and increasing effectiveness.

What’s your experience, and how are you using field data collection techniques to add even greater value to your organisation? We want to hear what you’re doing, and how you are adding value or reducing costs as a result.

Tell us how information from the field is shared with office based staff, keeping them up to date and creating a more collaborative organisation?

Asset Management

Manage your organisations assets in one central database

ArcGIS is the platform of choice for organising a wide variety of data in a central repository and then providing access to relevant layers of information right across the enterprise. Understand the location and condition your physical assets and make the right decisions as a result.

Entry Criteria

Are you using ArcGIS to manage, maintain and track your organisation’s assets? Perhaps you are trying to decide where to locate a store or invest in a new development? Perhaps you need to regularly check and monitor the condition of your assets to ensure that they are being maintained properly?

We want to hear how ArcGIS is used in your organisation as a central source of record to maintain and manage your assets – leading to better decisions, improved effectiveness and reduced costs.

Tell us how this information is hared across the organisation, and used to connect different departments and add even greater value to your organisation.

Community Engagement

Web GIS is the key to collaboration and community engagement

As data sharing and crowd-sourced information rapidly gains traction, there are increasing ways to share information, collaborate and engage your stakeholders with GIS. Many organisations are discovering the benefits of GIS as a tool to collaborate with colleagues, and finding new ways of engaging with customers and citizens.

Entry Criteria

Are you using GIS as a central platform for joining-up departments, sharing information and collaborating internally?

Perhaps you’re using crowd-sourced information from people outside your own organisation to improve decision-making. You could be working in disaster management, humanitarian aid or require the public to respond to a survey from their location about air quality or wildlife updates?

We want to hear about the innovative ways you are using GIS to engage and communicate with your stakeholders, and adding value to your organisations as a result.

Tell us how you are using GIS to engage with the public or build a community.
