The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons
To commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, over 4,200 beacons were lit around the UK and across the Commonwealth. Esri UK used ArcGIS to create an interactive web map to publicise this unique occasion and help over half a million people find their nearest beacon.
Read the case study for information on how:
- The web-based map developed by Esri UK displayed the locations of 4,200 beacons, making it easy for people to find the ones nearest to them and get involved.
- Esri UK published the map online and shared through social media to help promote the event; the map was viewed by over 500,000 people.
- The event was a huge success and the Queen’s Pageantmaster applauded the role played by Esri UK.
"Esri UK provided us with a unique map for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons and I applaud the teams’ efforts."
Bruno Peek, Pageantmaster for The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Beacons.
