A Letter from Jack Dangermond


As our world changes, GIS maps are increasingly connecting people, communities, and solutions. They are helping visualize and understand the nature of everything we see and do. These maps are possible because of the focus, talent, and vision of GIS professionals, some of whose work is featured in this book.

GIS is helping make collaboration possible. The maps in Esri® Map Book Volume 35 represent examples of how the use of digital geography helps us see what others can’t. From terrorism in France to monarch migration in the US to solar panel suitability in Puerto Rico, the data and spatial analytics developed from these works represent the growing geospatial infrastructure that represents our world in digital forms.

I congratulate all contributors to Esri® Map Book Volume 35, whose work inspires us through not only the innovative use of technology but through sharing an understanding and each other’s world.

Warm regards,

Jack Dangermond
