It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Let’s unveil the 2020 Esri Canada Map Calendar.
This year, we saw some very creative data visualizations submitted to our annual map calendar contest. From showing the connection between social deprivation and crime, to communicating bike routes and municipal land use, and displaying where greywater is released by cruise ships, it’s amazing to see the variety of ways people are using ArcGIS to create maps for their projects and daily operations.
Here are the 14 maps chosen for our 2020 Map Calendar. You can explore each map by selecting the links further below.
