Esri UK Launches ‘Great British Map Challenge’
Esri UK has announced a new contest to find Britain’s best story map. The winning entries will win one of five top prizes and feature on Esri UK’s new story map gallery which will launch in the Autumn.
Story maps combine interactive maps and multimedia content to create a unique user experiences. Since the launch of ArcGIS Online, hundreds of organisations have used Esri’s mapping tools to tell their stories and some of the best examples can be found in Esri’s Story Map Gallery.
Esri UK is encouraging potential story mappers to look at the ‘Great British Summer’ for inspiration. From major sporting events to music festivals, seaside holidays to picnics in city parks, there are many great British summer experiences that can be shared on a story map. Alternatively, entrants can submit story maps they have made previously.
