Zebra Imaging Challenge and other GIS Contests

Zebra Imaging is launching the 3D Geospatial Challenge "to encourage participants from the GIS community to use Zebra Imaging's software tools and print services to portray their GIS data using holographic technology."

Participants in the Zebra Imaging 3D Geospatial Challenge will compete by framing their 3D data set using Zebra Imaging's ZScape(TM) Preview or ZScape(TM) Exporter software.


Each entry will be reviewed by a panel of Zebra Imaging judges for the following:


Design efficiency

Technical complexity

Usefulness of application

Zebra Imaging will select three winners from the following industries: Public Safety, Planning, and Defense.

Winners of the challenge will receive a 24" x 24" 3D holographic print of their data and an illumination stand. The winning concepts will be displayed at the Zebra Imaging Booth at the Esri International User Conference the week of July 23, 2012 in San Diego, CA.
