2 Solar Eclipse Maps in ArcGIS Online

Blog Post created by jkerski-esristaff Employee on Jul 18, 2017

There are lots of August 2017 Solar Eclipse maps online, but I wanted to draw your attention to 2 of them in particular that I think would be valuable before, during, and after the eclipse for viewing and for those of you who are instructors, teaching purposes.

 

  1. At the Esri User Conference last week in San Diego, a giant 30 foot long eclipse map was on display.  A web version of this in ArcGIS Online from the author is available here:

On the map, you can turn layers off and on, zoom and pan, get information about cities and the path, and more.

 

  1. Another map is in a blog from our colleagues at GeoLounge:

Scroll about 1/3 of the way down the page.

 

This map has the added layer of historic cloud cover for 21 August.  

 

Some public libraries are distributing eclipse-safe glasses.  Be safe and enjoy!
