Some of the richest and most interesting content in the World Topographic Map is contributed by educational campuses across the world. So far almost two dozen higher education and K-12 organizations have created their campus basemaps using Esri templates and now have their campus basemap hosted for free on ArcGIS Online. If you are attending the Esri Education Conference you will have some unique opportunities to find out more about this growing program and see how your campus can benefit from being part of the Community Maps Program. Here are some examples of Community Maps related events at the Ed UC:
- Get Your Campus on the Map! Introducing the Community Maps Program – This 75-minute technical workshop will go over all the details of how campus organizations can benefit from participating in the Community Maps Program.
- GIS Solutions EXPO – The Community Maps team will be staffing a booth in the Ed UC showcase area for the Saturday (July 6th) reception and all day Sunday (July 7th). Don’t miss this opportunity to see demonstrations and get your questions about Community Maps answered.
- Hands-on Learning Lab – For anyone wanting self-paced, applied instruction on Community Maps, there is a short tutorial offered in the Hands-on Learning Lab. This quick lesson will give you details on how to contribute your content to Esri Community Maps, and Esri staff will be available to answer questions. No registration is required!
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Esri Education Conference, and if you are staying for the Esri International User Conference, don’t forget to check out all of the Community Maps events there.
