First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has followed the GIS Solutions Challenge, shared it with your friends and participated!

Unfortunately, only one solution was able to successfully run on the testing dataset and it did not meet the benchmarks set by the competition. As such, no innovator is eligible for an award and we are regretfully closing the competition.

While we were unable to accomplish the goal of the GIS Solutions Challenge; we are grateful to this community for their participation and are excited by the potential for crowdsourcing solutions to common GIS problems.
