First Place in Esri’s International Storytelling with Maps Contest

Author: Jenny Axelrod Published: September 17, 2015

Exciting news! The story map we developed in collaboration with Greenbelt Land Trust won first place in the Conservation, Environment and Sustainability category of Esri’s storytelling with maps contest. The map journal takes you along a trail at Bald Hill Farm, a unique community resource in Corvallis, Oregon where working lands are managed alongside wildlife and plant habitats, and recreational and educational opportunities abound. Interactive trail maps, videos, photos and text combine to tell the story of how this flagship property came into Greenbelt’s care and the role it plays in creating a conservation footprint connecting several adjacent natural areas into a mosaic of protected lands and miles of trail systems.

 

 

We are honored to be recognized for this great collaboration. Not to mention the excitement of meeting the founder of Esri- Jack Dangermond in person!
