Esri User Conference Map How-to-a-palooza

At this year’s Esri User Conference, there will be a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-crazy-thematic-mapping-demo-fest session wherein the esteemed Dr. Kenneth Field and I trade barbs, quips, and mapping secrets.

We’ll pool together some maps that we’ve made and take turns flying through how to make them in ArcGIS; like map-maker tennis. All secrets revealed!

For my part, I’ve assembled a set of interesting/absurd/hmmmm-worthy maps over the past year. I’ve got a set of ten pretty much locked in. And if there’s time in the session, I’ll pull from some of last year’s maps -that’s where I need your help.

I’ll bring these map projects to go over…

.


Lights On & Lights Out

.


The Wheel of Happiness

.


Chernoff

.


Bubble Madness

.


Fast Food Frequency

.


Split Hex

.


Hacking a DEM Sunrise

.


Beer vs Wine

.


College Football Air Mile Index

.


Lego-ifier

.

It’s a whirlwind of map fabrication. And if there’s time left in the session, I’ll have a grab bag from last year that I can pull from. In the comments section, please let me know your preference of which you’d like to see (or, I suppose, which you’d hate to see). Or a ranking of them if you are feeling crazy.

Candidates, Time-Permitting. Please tell me your preference…

The Global Sharknado Threat

.


Five Years of Drought

.


The United States of Craigslist

.


Hurricanes Since 1851

.

Thanks for your help and I hope to see you at the Esri User Conference this July 10 – 14! Don’t forget to comment on your preference from the last batch of maps.

Happy Mapping, John

About

I have far too much fun looking for ways to understand and present data visually, hopefully driving product strategy and engaging users. I work in the Content team at Esri, pushing and pulling data in all sorts of absurd ways -and then talking about it. I also get to spend time with the Story Maps team, working on fun and useful user experiences. When I'm not doing those things, I'm chasing around toddlers and wrangling chickens, and generally getting into other ad-hoc adventures. Life is good.
