Print and Assemble These Map Tree Ornaments

John Nelson from Esri has posted three map ornament templates you can print and assemble for your Christmas tree.  Made using the Dymaxion map projection there are three different stylized views of the world:


Each template is a high resolution image (about 6MB) that can be printed, cut out, and assembled by following the little tabbed guidelines.

John Nelson’s globe ornament templates are based on the Dymaxion projection.

For those in GIS that want to see how John Nelson created the map ornament temples in ArcGIS Pro, read further along in the article for his explanation.
