Des Plaines, IL (January 24, 2018) URISA is pleased to announce the Exemplary Systems in Government (ESIG) Awards process for 2018.

Winners will be recognized during the Awards Ceremony at GIS-Pro & CalGIS 2018 in Palm Springs, California (October 9-12, 2018).                                                                                                                          

Submissions are invited in two categories:
