Maps.com brings together remarkable maps to help people explore and better understand the world through the power of cartography.
Esri, the global leader in GIS technology, created Maps.com, a platform for sharing and discussing visually engaging maps that inspire, challenge, educate, delight and provoke in a myriad of topics and formats. Through analytics and dynamic visualizations, videos and 3D models, Maps.com now presents topics such as climate change, the digital divide and even the study of Mars.
The idea behind Esri’s new platform is to bring the power of mapping to a wide audience. The site is suitable for both general users and cartography enthusiasts, scientists and specialists looking for access to new and useful data resources or insightful stories from the world around us.
The Maps.com platform has a special focus on authors as well. All interested individuals or organizations are encouraged to send their maps to be presented on the site. To submit your project to the platform’s editorial team, follow: maps.com/submit-map/.
“Maps can help us tell stories about what’s happening on our planet, experience new ideas, and guide us where we want to go,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri president. “With Maps.com, we are proud to partner with some of the most innovative map makers to celebrate how they can show us the future we’re facing, bad or good, and which can help us to build a better world.”
