With King Charles III’s coronation approaching, we felt inspired to create a map in honour of the event. So, we researched what regions, monuments and other objects have been named after him.

Using ArcGIS Pro, we created a map so that you can explore this remote region without having to don your coat and mittens.
This 3D diorama captures the white-capped mountains and surrounding landscape, including recreating the textures of fallen snow and ice walls.
