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 the author

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 ArcGIS Living Atlas team at Esri, pushing and pulling data in all sorts of absurd ways and then sharing the process. I also design user experiences for maps and apps. 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.
