For 35 years, Esri Press has published the Esri Map Book. We offered the book to all Esri attendees in their swag bag. This year, we are again offering the web experience of the book to everyone, as part of their virtual swag bag.
In years past, we've waited until the start of the conference to release the cover design. This year we're releasing it early, along with the content.
By Thursday, July 9th, everyone will be able to view the maps and read the descriptions for all the entries who are part of volume 35. You'll see maps about world purchasing power, the 21st Century Silk Road, Ventura County Fire Department, an ecoregion map of Yambaru National Park, Okinawa, Japan, and many more.
For those who would like a printed copy of the book, it can be purchased from the Esri Merchandise Store that will open on Monday, July 13th. You can pick up a copy along with one of the cool, new t-shirts, and a copy ofLindsey the GIS Professionalbook, in English and Spanish (so you can finally explain GIS and the amazing work you do to your family and friends). More about the Esri Merchandise Store, to come!
Like other teams within Esri, we're excited about new possibilities to explore with the first-ever virtual Esri User Conference. For you, it means you get to be the first to experience some of the exclusive offerings developed especially for this type of delivery. And to ensure that attendees can still have easy access to Esri Press staff and resources, our space at Esri UC allows you to connect with us directly, connect with us later, read about our new children's book series, download a copy of our latest catalog of new and upcoming titles, and more.
Here's a slice of what you can expect for your Esri UC experience with Esri Press:
Because we can't offer you author meet-and-greets at our booth this year, you'll have the next best thing: curated interviews with user-submitted questions for some of our authors. We'll be asking your questions during this pre-recorded session, and you'll be able to access the recording anytime during Esri UC. See the full list of participating authors here.
Also new for your 2020 Esri UC experience are book trailers, 30- to 40-second videos featuring key titles and giving you a glimpse into the book's content or related resources. Be sure to check out the one for our "Women and GIS" series, which includes the links to the story map, "Celebrating Women: Stars of Spatial Science," and two sessions in the Women and GIS webinar series.
Esri UC is the time when Esri users get a sneak peak of what's coming for books before the general public. This year is no different: Discover new titles coming this year here--including new editions of GIS Tutorial for ArcGIS Pro and Getting to Know ArcGIS Pro, both updated for ArcGIS Pro 2.6.
Just because there's distance doesn't mean we're distant: You can start an instant chat with a member of Esri Press anytime during the Expo on Monday, July 13, through Wednesday, July 15. Find the chat feature on our landing page and ask us about reviewing a desk copy, our recommendations for a course you're designing, or anything GIS!
Have a book idea that you're ready to talk seriously about? Want to understand our book development process? Request a meeting with our senior acquisitions editor and set up a time to chat. Find the "Schedule a Meeting" button on our landing page and complete the form. Be sure to tell us what you want to discuss so we can have any resources ready for you.
But what about the book giveaway? you might ask. Because there is no physical presence for Esri UC and hence no Esri Press booth, the end-of-Esri-UC book giveaway will have to wait until next year. We'll miss the excitement buzzing around attendees lining up. Attendees can always visit the Esri Merch Store to purchase discounted copies of our popular and latest copies.
Looking for resources to introduce children to fun, interesting careers? Esri Press has you covered, parents and educators.
In partnership with engineering and consulting firm, Bolton & Menk, Esri Press is publishing its first series of children's books, STEAM at Work! The series is aimed at illustrating careers in science, tech, and engineering. Featuring diverse characters and topics, the books guide young readers through an exploration of what it means to be a GIS professional, landscape architect, civil engineer, and more. Topics on landscape architecture, water resource engineering, and civil engineering, for example, introduce children to the AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) fields and teach them about important construction, environmental, and social issues that workers in these fields help solve. With fun illustrations and clear, concise language, the books take complex technical information and make it easily understandable.
Bolton & Menk’s first book, Walter the Raindrop, A Water Cycle Story, was developed and handed out in conjunction with children’s activities being offered during the Smithsonian Water/Ways traveling exhibit. The idea grew in popularity, and more books followed.
Getting children excited about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) fields at a younger age opens them up to even more possibilities of what they could grow up to be. The STEAM at Work! series brings awareness to exciting, fun STEAM careers and gives children new ideas for channeling their passions. Each book in the series demonstrates different environmental and social issues the characters use their skills to solve, encouraging critical and creative thinking about the world. Like its characters, readers are inspired to make a positive difference in their community now and in their future careers.
Books come with downloadable teacher's guide, and free, fun printable and online activities.
