ESRI Press Publishes Children Map the World, Volume 2

Children's Hand-Drawn Maps of the World Focus on Themes of Peace and Universal Cooperation

Redlands, California—November 4, 2009—ESRI Press recently published a new international collection of 100 maps drawn by young artists and cartographers under the theme Many Nations—One World.

Children Map the World: Selections from the Barbara Petchenik Children's World Map Competition, Volume 2, features maps from competitions held for children ages 4–15. Representing 37 countries, the maps were selected from the biennial Barbara Petchenik Children's World Map Competition sponsored by the International Cartographic Association (ICA) in A Coruña, Spain, in 2005 and Moscow, Russia, in 2007.

"We have been involved with the ICA for many years and are pleased to continue our support of its efforts in promoting the Barbara Petchenik Children's World Map Competition," said ESRI president Jack Dangermond. "The creative ability expressed by the young contributors to this book is truly amazing. I was particularly struck by the recurring theme of universal cooperation in their mapmaking efforts and sincerely hope that their view portends our future."

This book follows the popular first volume of Children Map the World, which ESRI Press published in 2005. The ICA created the competition in 1993 as a memorial for Barbara Bartz Petchenik, a cartographer who studied how children comprehend maps. Since that time, thousands of children have participated in the biennial competitions. The 2009 and 2011 competitions will reflect the theme Living in a Globalized World.

Children Map the World, Volume 2 (ISBN: 9781589482463, 144 pages, $29.95), is available at online retailers worldwide, at, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
