The team will be presented with their award at our prestigious medals and awards ceremony on 3 June.
The Geography in Government awards, which are split into five categories, celebrate the breadth and depth of work done by members of the Geography in Government community across the public sector, including advancing geospatial science, operation delivery, excellence in geo-visualisation and cartography, impact on policy, and contribution to the profession.
