GeoSUR is a program that maintains a network of geographic information in Latin America and the Caribbean where eighty participating institutions operate map services that are currently linked to the regional portal. The award recognizes data application, service development, or geospatial information products having particular characteristics of innovation and relevance. In this edition, it was awarded the Digital Map of Mexico, given its easy access and its use of spatial data – aspects that stood out among the various proposals in the competition.
