Make great symbols in ArcGIS Pro | Créer ses propres symboles dans ArcGIS Pro - 15 minutes
Edie Punt, Craig Williams ESRI
Learn how to make and manage your own symbols in ArcGIS Pro. You'll see how to find and modify existing symbols, including representation rules. We'll cover simple steps to create custom symbols from existing artwork ”no artistic skill required." You'll get tips for working with color, color schemes, and transparency. Finally, you'll learn how to leverage styles to organize symbols and streamline your map authoring workflows.

A Tale of Two Maps: Basemap Design at USGS | Le conte de deux cartes : la conception des fonds de carte à l’USGS - 15 minutes
Elaine Guidero, US Geological Survey; Adam Yarnell, Kristin Fishburn, and Rob Dollison, US Geological Survey
The need to update data for The National Map cached basemaps provided an opportunity to refresh the somewhat dated and problematic designs. Within the constraints of color palette and data availability, I created new basemaps to replace the old ones. One version was designed to function as both a reference map and a true basemap, while maintaining the traditional look of US topographic maps. The other version revamped the imagery basemap, which combines satellite and aerial imagery with select features and labels. Each map was designed from web caching scales 1 (1:591M) through 16 (1:9K). Design challenges encountered during the process, and my resolutions, will be discussed.

Flow Mapping with JavaScript | La cartographie des flux avec JavaScript - 15 minutes
Sarah Bell, Esri; Jacob Wasilkowski, Esri
Flow mapping is a cartographic necessity, yet still lacks empirical design rules (Jenny, et al. 2016). Common solutions for dynamic flow mapping currently include using straight lines and geodesic lines to show the flow of phenomenon over space, both of which have immediate visual limitations. By using Bézier curves, we have created a flow mapping method that overcomes these visual limitations and provides visual cues on flow direction, while also improving the flow map's aesthetics. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how to utilize the ArcGIS API for JavaScript to map data onto the HTML canvas with a new layer we created called the Canvas Flowmap Layer. We will show how cartographers can use this layer to interactively visualize their own datasets.

Charting the Heavens with ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro | Cartographier les cieux avec ArcMap et ArcGIS Pro - 15 minutes
Heather Smith, Esri
Learn how to create a printed star chart! With a focus on symbology, labelling, and custom layouts, this presentation will show you a wealth of tips and tricks in both ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro for creating your own star chart. You'll learn about labeling, annotation, masking, symbology, transparency, circular layouts and grids.

Designing for Mobility | La conception cartographique au service de la mobilité - 15 minutes
Kate Chanba
The future of transportation offers a myriad of travel options for cities of all sizes. Maps and journey planners are vital to facilitating new services and describing unique trip benefits. Given this, we will discuss how the cartographic design of the following can influence travel behavior: descriptive iconography, destination-driven networks, and legible infrastructure details in transportation maps. These design considerations improve the users' experience, taking them from where they are to where they want to go, while also giving quick results.

We will look at recently developed multi-modal maps I created for the City of Key West and routing tools I've worked on with Conveyal for TriMet Transportation and Arlington County Commuter Services.
