Earl Nordstrand, our fearless leader has come up with a cool challenge for the 2009 User Conference. He created six US maps highlighting a demographic scenario available as part of ESRI’s demographic data and in the Business Analyst Products. The six maps will hang in the San Diego Convention Center lobby. They all look alike, yet there are clues on each that make them vastly different.
Here are the six demographic scenarios you have to link to each map:
- 2009 Unemployment Rate
- 2000 – 2009 Population: Annual Compound Growth Rate
- 2000 Vacant Housing Units: Seasonal/Recreational/Occasional Use
- 2009 Population 15+ by Marital Status: Never married
- 2009 Diversity Index
- 2009 Average Family Size
Think you can pinpoint all six? Come by the Commercial Solutions island and we’ll tell you the answers.
For now…here’s a live look into the “Official ESRI Map Challenge Laboratory War Room/Hallway”. Jim and James are giving the final check check check 1,2′s.
