Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions is pleased to announce the winners of the first international Best Practices Award and Student Poster Competitions, sponsored by the Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions for Education Program. The worldwide competitions recognize projects and programs based on Intergraph’s GeoMedia(R) and MGE technology.
