The magic of map-making: reflections on the #30DayMapChallenge
The #30DayMapChallenge made its return in November 2020. The challenge, originally launched on Twitter in 2019 by Topi Tjukanov, brings together map enthusiasts from around the world to showcase their work and explore the plethora of options in map-making.

Ivan Vasilyev, Data Specialist from our Methodology Team reflects on his experience with the challenge.
