*GeoLeague Challenge*

This will mark the sixth year of the GeoLeague Challenge to be held at the
ASPRS Annual Conference in April 2016.  Teams from across the country
compete in a challenge put forth by the ASPRS Student Advisory Council
(SAC).  Please review the challenge and the rules for 2016. This year’s
challenge is to use freely available imagery to produce an innovative
visualization product featuring the national park of your choice. This
challenge celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service!

In celebration of the upcoming National Park Service Centennial, the
National Park Foundation and the National Park Service kicked off the Find
Your Park movement to inspire all people to connect with, enjoy, and
support America’s national parks. They invite those who already know and
love the parks and also the next generation of visitors, supporters, and
advocates to join the movement at FindYourPark.com

There are 407 national parks and the SAC is challenging you to pick one and
create a visualization product that highlights its unique features.
Examples include:

●       Time series animation

●       GIS fly through

●       Online story map

●       Image based structure from motion

●       3D model
