I really enjoyed this challenge, it forced me to spend time with some of the reporting tools that I have not used much.  I would love to see more like this.

All,

 

This one was fun for me as I had to use Spatial Tools, Multi-Row formulas and Join tools.

-My workflow gets the job done, but it is nowhere near as pretty as some of the others that i have seen.

-Cheers!

This was fun, even though I am not going to Nashville 😢

 

I need to give a shout-out to @NicoleJohnson for mentioning something about changing the icons in the map.
That have me so intrigued, that I rushed over to the Tool Mastery Index to learn more about the Report Map Tool.

So here is my take on this

It took me a while to get the map to look something like the one provided, but it was fun to play around with the settings.
I am not totally satisfied, but I am not done playing with the map tool either 😉
