Next Big Thing Contest

We challenge our readership help us identify The Next Big Thing.

Do you know of a new geospatial technology or system of operations that you believe will transform the way you work?  Tell us about it to win $500!  Tech and non-tech ideas will all be considered.

Write an abstract of about 200 words (or less) outlining this Next Big Thing: what it is, its strengths and drawbacks, any experience you have with it, etc.  Send it via email, by February 15. 

Our editors will select the three most interesting abstracts and ask for a 1,200-1,500 word article from each author (we can assist with writing and editing). The article selected as best will receive $500; second place will receive $300; and third place will receive $200. All three will be published in subsequent issues of xyHt.
