Research Resource: Introducing ArcGIS Living Atlas Indicators of the Planet (Beta)
In partnership with Microsoft, National Geographic, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Esri is gathering these and other topics into the ArcGIS Living Atlas Indicators of the Planet (Beta).
Leveraging the near real-time information already contributed to Living Atlas by organizations such as NOAA, UN Environment Programme, and US Geological Survey, Indicators of the Planet draws upon authoritative sources for the latest updates on 18 topics, with more being developed. In addition to the summary statistics provided by the GeoCards, there are a series of maps and resources to better understand each issue and learn how to integrate timely data into decision making, along with stories on progress towards building a sustainable planet.
