US: Esri has recently released a new and interactive map illustrating the earth’s natural and human systems and how they have changed—and will change—over time. Scientists, policy makers, planners, and activists can examine detailed spatial information that is critical for adapting to a warmer future, with the Atlas for a Changing Planet Story Map.

Atlas explores a sample of maps, imagery, and data from Esri ArcGIS Online. Themes covered by Story Map are: understanding natural systems, mapping human systems, mapping ocean impacts, predicting the future, and international cooperation. The map also models data from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in three scenarios. With this data, users navigate the Story Map to see projected changes in temperature and precipitation based on the level at which greenhouse gas emissions increase or decrease over time.
