Esri Map Book Encapsulates 25 Years of GIS Development

Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Volume Includes Comparative Historic Maps

Esri has published volume 25 of its popular Map Book series. This commemorative edition includes a “then and now” section that compares similar maps from the 25-year period, making it of particular interest to cartographers, geographic information system (GIS) professionals, and geography students.

“This year’s map book marks a milestone,” says Jack Dangermond, Esri president. “For a quarter of a century, this publication has chronicled the rapid evolution of GIS and celebrated the achievements of GIS users in a wide range of industries. This volume republishes a selection of maps printed in early editions of Esri Map Book. It is shown with similar maps made with current ArcGIS software and illustrates how far we’ve come.”

Including more than 100 full-color maps, the annual Esri Map Book showcases the most creative and compelling and best-designed maps presented at the annual Esri International User Conference Map Gallery exhibition. Each map includes a description indicating how it was produced and used.
