Technical Community Event – “Story Through Maps” Challenge

  • Encourage story telling through maps
  • Encourage use of GIS software to create maps
  • Promote use of maps as a mode of communication
Problem Statement

The task of this challenge is to create a short video – describing a story through maps. It should highlight the process of map making, its data, insights, and impact. The challenge is open for students and young professionals having less than 15 years of working experience.

  • The maps should be created using a geospatial software of the participant’s choice, such as QGIS, Felt, Mapbox, ArcGIS Online or any other map making software.
  • The map(s) should describe a problem and highlight the impact. It would be nice to have an animated map but not a necessity. Avoid having too much voiceover, much of the story should be described by your map(s).


All deadlines are at 11:59 PM AoE on the stated dates
