The PMI® Global Congress—held in Phoenix, Arizona in 2014—is an opportunity for the Project Management Institute to bring project practitioners and members together from around the world to learn, discuss and engage around their industry.

For this story, I plotted those houses on a map using Google Maps Engine. I also put out a call on social media, asking Lawrencians to submit photos of their decked out houses to add to the map as well:
