Journal of Maps Best Map 2016 (FREE to view)

Tue, 20 Dec 2016

It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce the award of the 2016 "Best Map" to Bernhard Jenny (RMIT University), Johannes Liem (City University London), Bojan Savric (Esri Inc) and William M. Putman (Goddard Space Flight Center) for their animated map visualizing a year of changes to Earth's CO2 titled "Interactive video maps: A year in the life of Earth's CO2". When the map is first loaded it appears as an animated map of the world showing just how dynamic this part of the Earth system is. But interact with the map – you find it’s pannable and zoomable – all other ways of interacting with 4D data seem mundane in comparison.

The awards committee noted the remarkable interactive animation; something that both tells a story and allows you to investigate. A big leap forward for interactive cartography, drawing the viewer in and allowing them to formulate potential global implications. For these reasons it is a deserving winner of this year’s award.
