GRID-Arendal wins Creative Map award - GRID-Arendal Articles
GRID-Arendal has focused on creative map making since its beginning. Over the last couple of years, we have developed Story Maps that combine Esri-technology and cartography to tell environmental stories in a new and powerful way. Yesterday, our work was rewarded with the Most Creative Map prize at the Esri User Conference in Oslo where Levi Westerveld, our expert in spatial analysis and cartography, spoke earlier in the week. The Norwegian Esri User Conference is an annual event that gathers experts and professionals in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to share experience, knowledge and to inspire cartographers. As a part of the annual event, Esri had invited organisations and companies to send in their maps and Story Maps for a competition. GRID-Arendal won Most Creative Map for Endangered Reefs, Threatened People, a Story Map created by Levi, in collaboration with Linwood H Pendleton and partners.
