Thirty Days of Mapping (FME-ing) #30DayMapChallenge 2021

Topi Tjukanov of Finland launched the #30DayMapChallenge in 2019 where hundreds of maps were made and shared on social media using the #30DayMapChallenge hashtag. Each days presents a map challenge focused on a different spatial feature or topic.
The topics for #30dayMapChallenge 2021 were:

As a die hard user of FME from (Safe Software),what could be a better opportunity to put my FME skills to test!
This post is a collection of all entries for #30DayMapChallenge 2021 by @Saint_GIS, most of which have been accomplished only using FME and in few cases, due to the nature of the challenge, the data prepared using FME.

Happy FME-ing :-) reading my #30DayMapChallenge 2021 entries!

It may be 30 days of gruelling, brainstorming; putting all your learning and experience into practice or self test To me, the whole idea of participating and contributing to #30DayMapChallenge 2021 is about promoting #GIS
But then the satisfaction in having contributed to promotion of GIS outweighs everything else!

GIS Temper, Let us not lose it!

I take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed in some way or the other, to my career and to what I am today in the field of GIS!

Thanks to Safe Software for such a wonderful product/platform "FME" that helped me to convert,transform,share and integrate data from multi-farious sources and types, not just for this #30DayMapChallenge 2021, but for the last 21 years of my career in GIS

Last but not the least, special thanks to my family (my wife and son) for all the patience, understanding and support, while I meticulously worked on the submission every day!
