If there’s one thing you’re guaranteed to see at UC (aside from thousands of other geogeeks), it’s a map. Covering virtually every topic from every corner of the globe, the Esri UC features thousands of stunning and informative web maps, mobile maps, and printed maps that all beg for your attention.
And while the entire event is devoted to the great work you do with mapping technology, the Map Gallery in particular is the ultimate showcase of your cartographic skills and ingenuity. Each year, we feature more than 700 posters and displays that tell the stories about how your work is making a difference in our world.
We’ve assembled a few of our favorite maps from the past year to celebrate the opening of submissions for the 2013 Map Gallery. Some of these were last year’s award winners, while others are just some of the more interesting work we saw on display. Click on any map to see a larger version.
