Are you an environmental educator with a passion for maps? This opportunity is for you! Esri has developed a tool that connects Adobe® Illustrator® and Photoshop® to the power of ArcGIS. It’s true! ArcGIS Maps for Adobe allows designers to create accurate and stunning maps within the world’s most widely used graphic editor program. We want to see what YOU can build with this new mapping extension! We’re calling on graphic designers and mapmakers alike to submit their beautiful maps for a chance to be featured in our upcoming ArcGIS Maps for Adobe guidebook, which will be published later this year. We will choose the top three maps that capture great design and cartography. Each winner will receive a copy of the book, an ArcGIS Maps for Adobe sketch book, sticker, and an Esri pen!
