ESRI Ireland “Maps Make Sense” competition – Winners announced
To coincide with the launch of ArcGIS Online in July, Esri Ireland launched the “Maps Make Sense” Competition Challenge.
This encouraged people to create a simple web map and share it on ArcGIS Online. The competition closed on September 30th and entries were passed to an independent panel of Judges consisting of Dominic Byrne; Fingal County Council; Hugh Managan, OSi and Richard Cantwell; IRLOGI.
The Judges have conferred and deliberated and it is our pleasure to announce the Winner of the Maps Make Sense Competition as Justin Gleeson of NIRSA for his “Feeling the Pinch” Web Map.
The standard was very high, wide ranging and the Judges commended all of the entries. Maps were judged on their attractiveness; ease of use and value of insight they delivered into a particular issue or topic. Justin wins a new Apple iPad and a Jet Ex Flying Experience: http://www.jet-experience.com/
There were also four Runners-Up Prizes (runners up detailed below). Each Runner Up will receive a Jet Ex Flying Experience Voucher and experience what it’s like to pilot and launch a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet in a highly realistic flight simulator.
Paul Synnott, Country Manager Esri Ireland, “On behalf of Esri Ireland we would like to extend our congratulations to Justin, Gavin, Simon, Paddy & Rachel – and sincere thanks to everyone who got involved to support this Initiative”.
