A Letter from Jack Dangermond


This map book is a small sampling of the work being done by GIS professionals around the world. GIS maps are increasingly becoming a key in how we understand, approach, and resolve our world’s challenges. With the advent of web GIS, these maps are more accessible and the stories they represent are transforming the behavior of organizations and society itself.

Esri® Map Book Volume 34 illustrates how spatial thinking is helping professionals from many fields make better decisions and then act on them in a new way. GIS is also helping improve collaboration and creating a growing culture of holistic problem solving, one that integrates multiple fields, cultures, and tiers of society.

I congratulate all the contributors in Esri Map Book Volume 34, whose maps and stories lay the foundation for a better future.

Warm regards,

Jack Dangermond
