Earlier this year, ArcGIS users across Canada submitted their best maps and apps for our Calendar and Apps of the Month contests. Find out which maps made it to the 2019 Esri Canada Map Calendar and which apps are showcased in the online app calendar and will be featured in the Esri Canada Blog as Apps of the Month.
I am pleased to announce the winners of our 2019 maps and apps contests. Can I get a drum roll please?
We’ve chosen 14 beautiful maps for our 2019 Map Calendar and 12 cool apps to be showcased as Apps of the Month in our blog and website homepage throughout the year.
While they cover different topics, you will see that the maps—whether paper or digital—incorporate art, data and geography to help us understand and make better decisions about our world.
Explore each map or app by selecting the links below.
