We are seeking photos featuring your community-centered research, work, internships, outreach, and service learning to add to our Geoscience At Work in the Community Story Map. This project which we are doing in collaboration with the Geological Society of America, highlights the work that geoscientists do in, for, and with communities. We hope these examples inspire geoscientists to reflect on their own community engagement opportunities. Our work in communities elevates science literacy and decision making.
Story Maps require that your photos are geotagged, or have GPS coordinates. This is a function that you set up in your cell phone. If you are unsure whether your photo is geotagged, please provide GPS latitude and longitude in degrees, minutes, and seconds to the hundredths (e.g. 37°40'54.94"N, 50°28'14.72"E). Search for these using Google Earth. Photos that lack location information will not be included in the map.
In order to have your photo included in the Story Map, your photo submissions must abide by these guidelines:
- Along with the submitted photos, entrants are required to submit a Photo Release Form.
- All photos featuring individuals' faces require the submission of a Model Release Form with signatures from each recognizable person in the photo.
- By submitting a photo, the entrant gives AGI and GSA permission to use this material in future printed and digital publications.
- Individuals in photos must be wearing shoes.
- Include a 2-3 sentence description of your role in the community.
- Include a brief caption for each photo, including the location of each photo.
- Photos must be geo-tagged or have GPS coordinates.
You may submit up to 3 photos with each submission.
If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Fortner at email@example.com.
