MAPPS member firms may enter projects in eight categories: airborne and satellite data acquisition; photogrammetry/elevation data generation; remote sensing; GIS/IT; surveying/field data collection; small projects; technology innovation; and licensed data products. A Grand Award will be presented from the category award winners to represent the MAPPS Project of the Year.
