Challenge 6: Living Atlas Cross-Stitch
In these strange days of social distancing and working from home, we have…a host of new office mates. Young ones who share our “work space” and care little for silence and think nothing of joining important web meetings. We used to take our kids to work occasionally, maybe for a charming little “take your kids to work day” or something. But guess what? We are on their turf now.
However, in addition to the challenges of our abrupt shift in working environments comes great opportunity. We are spending more time in proximity to our family than ever before, and we also have to do our work. What if you take a moment, right now, to explain exactly what it is you are working on to your kids. Because maps are cool. And solving problems is fun.
Here’s an idea from colleague Javier Angel…
Challenge 1: Coloring In
If you are looking for stylistic resources, then consider grabbing one of these pre-made oddball fun ArcGIS Pro styles (here’s how to add styles to your project) and get a head start…
[Peruse these luscious styles]
Yesterday I collaborated with my son Juneau, who is (was? …it’s confusing these days) in 5th grade. He wisely chose the Lego Map style and enjoyed matching up the brick colors to what he judged a good fit for mountains, plains, deserts, and the like. Both last night before bedtime and this morning before I was “off to work” he thanked me for making a map with him. Warmed my heart. What a fantastic intern.So team up with your new office mates and make something wonderful! These days, every day is #TakeYourWorkToKidsDay so show us the maps you come up with during these days of opportunity! Juneau and I would love to see them.
