If you would like to learn how they were made (mega simple) and give it a go for yourself or your customer, here’s a how-to.

In the meantime, enjoy the wonderful texture of our beautiful shared home…

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.
