Map Your Lock-down (or Your Escape!) for the Spring Regional!

Nearly all of us have been going through some form of quarantine or lock-down these last couple months, and WLIA members want to see your story about it!

The WLIA Map Contest team is inviting you all to submit an analog map (no ArcPro or web applications!) that we will display at the Virtual Spring Regional! Here’s what you need to do:

1. Pick a theme (or make a map of each theme):

  • Map Your Lock-Down: Examples: Your Work From Home space, neighborhood, errands route, or anything that applies to your experience in quarantine.
  • Map Your Lock-Down Escape: Examples: The first people you want to see again, the first restaurant you want to revisit, that big vacation you want to take now, etc.

2. Make your Map/s!

3. Scan and Submit your Map/s – Scan or take a legible photo of the map and send it to colter.sikora@wisconsin.gov and grace.white@legis.wisconsin.gov by Thursday, June 4th at 12 Noon.

The Map Contest Team will prepare a gallery to recognize the maps during the Virtual Lunch on Thursday, June 4th!

For some rocking good examples of lockdown maps, check out this link from CityLab, which features WLIA’s own Jim Landwehr!

If you have any questions, please contact Grace and Colter!
