A little over a week ago I was at the 2009 International ESRI User Conference in San Diego with 12,000 other folks and I put up a couple of posters.

Walk There! won 1st and Best. Kudos to E. Goetze and the Walk There! team.

Here is a link to all the winners.

There are other Cartotalker's who received awards too.

Congrats on the award Matt! We should have met up at the conference for a drink. Maybe next year.

Matthew,

Congrats! I poured over your maps. They looked great, and you deserved the win. Great product!

I will toot my own horn for a minute - one of the Marine Corps Installations (MCB Quantico) won an award as well.

I was one of the judges (for one of the categories). It was very tough this year narrowing down the choices to the 3 best maps in my category. There were a LOT of very good maps! My fellow judges felt the same way. Very gratifying. Thanks to everyone who participated! You made our jobs harder, but in a good way! :D

Congrats to Matt and David T and all of the other winners!

I was a little astonished at how many quality maps there were this year. The bar has definitely been raised at the UC and I am sure ESRI's recent focus on cartography is partially responsible. Not to be a fanboy, but it's easier to create compelling cartographies with their new software releases than before.

I would've enjoyed having a CartoTalk lunch or a drink (or 2) with Erin, David et al. Perhaps next year, or in Sacramento at NACIS. The Cartography Special Interest Group would be a logical place as well. It would be cool to have NACIS or Cartotalk sponsor that next year.

All in all, a great conference and great maps. E. Geddes maps from San Luis Obispo, were refreshingly well done as were Cartifacts' and I really liked one done in a historical style titled "The Roman Empire and the Writings of Paul," but I didn't catch who made it. One of my favorites was Europa's lenticular map. <scroll down to bottom of page>

...and my map won Best Analytical Presentation!

It's a summary of my Master's Thesis work on green roof modeling: Where can green roofs reduce CSOs in the Bronx?

I was really suprised. I guess I've learned more than I realized from this board.

I've been to the last four ESRI conferences and the maps are getting better every year. The ongoing debate of "you can't create good maps in ArcGIS" seems to be coming to an end. I'm sure application improvements are a part of it, but the most profound changes had more to do with creativity, color-choice and composition - technologies not found in the latest ArcGIS release.

Matt, where can I see your maps? I missed them in the gallery - the place is huge.

You may be right. I won't deny that Arc is making big strides in Cartographic capabilities, and the examples from this year’s ESRI conference obviously demonstrate increasing cartographic standards. I noticed, however, while flipping through the new ESRI map book that quite a few of the entries list Adobe software in their construction. I wonder if there is a threshold in terms of how much post processing can be done outside of Arc to be considered an ESRI produced map?

I personally found many of the maps using Illustrator to be more visually appealing than the others, though there were quite a few entries I had a hard time believing didn’t use any design software. I still think a lot of the design and layout tasks needed to create a high quality map are WAY easier in Adobe than Arc (I won’t even consider GeoMedia).

You can see the Walk There! work at www.oregonmetro.gov/walk

I made a poster featuring 8 of the walks with cartography from E. Goetze and myself - but booklet was created with help from a number of folks.

I also made a few posters featuring maps from a 1st draft of a Mobility Corridor Atlas that H. Brackett and I created recently. The PDF is on our ftp site and it's about 160Mb. We did all the maps in Arc (for once) and layout in InDesign. Here is the link. It's a work-in-progress and loaded with data that's difficult to illustrate. The audience (for Draft 1) is for technically oriented urban planners. We split the Portland region into 24 Transportation Corridors and analyzed them with respect to different transportation modes (car, transit, freight, bike, etc.). IMO, I don't think the poster did justice to the Atlas. Perhaps I can spend more time if we make another draft.

I hope you mean that you pored over them - maps and liquids don't go well together usually!

I do agree that the standard of the gallery maps continues to improve. Congrats to all.
