It is Earth Science Week! Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain appreciation and understanding of Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. We want to join in by sharing how ArcGIS brings Earth science information to life for geoscientists, geo-educators, and geomentors to analyze, map, and ultimately share their knowledge with the world.
This year’s Earth Science Week theme is “Visualizing Earth Systems”. The ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World is a vast collection of authoritative and ready-to-use content and a great resource for Earth Science geographic information. For ten of what we think are the most interesting earth science layers and applications in the Living Atlas, see http://blogs.esri.com/esri/esri-insider/2015/10/14/living-atlas-resources-for-earth-science-week-and-beyond/#sthash.IqKs81EY.dpuf
