The ISI has announced the ISI-Esri Student Poster Competition for 2018/19. Final judging will take place during the ISI World Statistics Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which will be held from 18–23 August 2019. This competition is sponsored by Esri and ISI. The competition aims to:

1) Promote research

With the integration of statistical and geospatial data, it is important to promote research in topics related to this integration and use of GIS in statistics, including spatial statistics, regression modeling, spatial data management, mapping, visualization and analysis.

2) Encourage spatial thinking

Spatial thinking involves identifying, analyzing, and understanding the location, scale, patterns, and trends of the geographic and temporal relationships among data. We aim to foster the development of geospatial methods and analysis in university statistics programs.

3) Inspire curiosity

Inspire your curiosity about statistical spatial analysis, geographic patterns, and geocomputing. GIS is about uncovering meaning and insights from within data. It provides a way to understand through data exploration, analytics, visualization, and sharing and dissemination.
