Link to College Gameday Map. A curation of my favorite College Gameday signs from 2019.

With the Gameday crew coming to Waco this week, I collected my favorite sign from each week of the season and put them on an ESRI Story Map. The map shows week-by-week the location of the game along with the sign I felt was most creative (but also appropriate for my blog).

If you are in Waco for the game this week, check out the great places to eat and hang out by clicking here.

Before scrolling down to see the signs, check out the interactive map showing where the Gameday team has traveled to since they started in 1993. This is the 3rd time Lee Corso and Desmond Howard have been to Waco for Gameday, which is not too shabby particularly since all three of those visits have been recently.

About a week in advance of the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) Conference in Waco, I got a wild idea to create a map of popular destinations that planners needed to see while in Waco.

The idea was born out of people sending me texts, emails, and LinkedIn messages about where they should go during their three days in Waco.

I had no idea that my wild hair idea would lead to more than 1,800 unique users (and many thousands of individual page visits) to visit the ESRI Story Map in only a few short days. In fact, it became pretty obvious that the map was being used by the convention goers and Wacoans alike.

Link to Texas APA comes to Waco Story Map . A story map curated to highlight many of the destinations in walking distance from the 2019 Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association conference that is being held in downtown Waco.
