For the past three years, Positium has taken part in the #30DayMapChallenge on Twitter. Last November, we went all in and created a map for all 30 challenge days. This had such an impact on us that we decided to have our very own map challenge, but at a bit calmer pace because, let’s be honest, #30DayMapChallenge is indeed quite a challenge. With that said, let us introduce the #2022MapChallenge, where we make one map every month to explore and explain the world of MPD and GIS.
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. In that first year, we went all out and submitted a map for every day. In 2020, however, we took a different approach and explored new map-making tools and techniques. Ivan Vasilyev, Data Specialist from our Methodology Team reflects on his experience with the challenge.
