Esri Introduces an Online Solar System Atlas
Esri has created a Solar System Atlas. Built using story maps technology, it gathers together more than 50 maps into a single easy-to-use app. Starting with our sun, Esri’s Solar System Atlas takes you on an interactive journey to the outward reaches of our solar system to examine many of the most detailed maps available for planets, moons, asteroids, and comets in our solar system.
The individual maps presented in Esri’s Solar System Atlas are not static images but interactive, allowing viewers to zoom in and out as well as pan around the surface to explore for themselves.
