Scrabble Map in Hebrew

We are in Tel Aviv for a few weeks and I spotted this in a small photographic exhibition. It’s a map of Israel with the countries of origin of some of the main immigrant communities laid out in scrabble pieces on top of the map – Iran, France, Spain, Norway, Russia, Morocco, Iraq, Poland and Yemen.

The artist explains:

Bristol Beer Factory

Dan Ormsby proudly shared this can of beer from the Bristol Beer Factory which displays a map of Bristol (of course!). Dan embellished with a little marker designating his home

“Hey ⁦@MapsintheWild⁩   Not bragging, but not only do I have a can of beer with a map on it, but my house is on the map.  How cool is that?  😎   I’ve added a custom label.  Almost seems a shame to drink it. ⁦@BrisBeerFactory⁩”

Then he drank it!

Man with a big Globe

For our 3rd anniversary, our co-founder Ken Field sent us this pic from the preparations for this year’s ESRI user conference. He said:

“Here’s a picture of me next to an 8.5ft diameter globe in our newest building on the Esri campus. One of my map buddies John Nelson was involved in designing the cartography as he explains in this blog. Feel free to get in touch if you’re near Redlands and I’ll give you a tour!”
