I’m very honored and insatiably excited to have been invited to do some talking/sharing/showing/mappy stuff in Germany and Switzerland this March. Part of this trip involves making map posters to give away at the Esri Konferenz 2020 in Bonn, hosted by Esri Germany and Esri Switzerland. I’m making two posters of each country. Here they are in their not-yet-totally-official form…
The watercolor, papercut, and Imhof style maps make heavy use of ArcGIS Pro styles of these same names. But each has a couple additions/tweaks for which I’ll share some how-tos a bit later on. The map meant to honor Erwin Raisz (top) is a new technique that I’m trying out and I’ll write a how-to for this, as well. In the meantime, give them a look!
Happy Mapping, John
Here are four detailed how-to blog posts if you are curious about how they were made or if you want to try it out for yourself.
Landscapes of Switzerland in the manner of Erwin Raisz.
Swiss topography in the manner of Eduard Imhof.
Paper cut elevation map of Germany.

Love the look of the Erwin Raisz style, very cool!
Thanks Will! Looking forward to writing the how-to on that one.
