For those of you that regularly examine changes over space and time with imagery and GIS: 81 different dates of historical imagery for the past 5 years now reside in ArcGIS via the World Imagery Wayback service. For more, see: https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/arcgis-living-atlas/imagery/wayback-81-flavors-of-world-imagery/ You can access this imagery in ArcGIS Online, ArcMap, and ArcGIS Pro. A great place to start is the World Imagery Wayback app – just by using a web browser – https://livingatlas.arcgis.com/wayback/ Great global resource for examining land use and land cover change, changes in water levels of reservoirs, coastal erosion, deforestation, regrowth, urbanization, and much more.
A freshwater story map called “The Water We Share” that outlines the different freshwater conservation projects that Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Canada scientists are currently working on and gives some background on why this landscape is important to protect.
Three new story maps from the Esri Education Team:
- Living in the Age of Humans, an introductory essay http://storymaps.esri.com/stories/2018/anthropocene/index.html
- The Human Reach, chapter one of the series, featuring web scenes, maps, and animations showing population density, urbanization, Earth at night, networks, and human footprint https://storymaps.esri.com/stories/2018/anthropocene/1-human-reach.html
- The Human Reach Atlas, featuring 2D web maps of each theme with links to item pages and source information. https://storymaps.esri.com/stories/2018/anthropocene-atlas/1-human-reach.html Undersea cables, shipping routes, changes in city population, and other core solid content. Here is where all of you GIS folks can get really excited, because every one of these maps features a “view layer in ArcGIS Online” where you can do just that. Once in ArcGIS Online, you can add more data layers, symbolize, classify, filter, do analysis, create your own story maps, and more, and you could bring the layers into Pro for even further analysis.
Future installments will feature biodiversity, land, freshwater, oceans, climate, and taking action.
