Maps are more than diagrams that help you navigate from point A to point B. They are windows into information that allow us to explore our world, understand it better, and engage with it more productively. This lesson explores five maps, which may inspire you to reconsider what maps can do and what you can do with them.
Directions * Solve a series of questions. * Each question hints at a location somewhere in the world. * To answer the question, frame the solution within the viewfinder using the map's pan/zoom functions.
A dashboard combines maps and other data visualizations to monitor real-time operations. This dashboard displays earthquake data, including the earthquakes from this morning. The map's data is constantly refreshed in real time. A blinking yellow circle highlights the most recent earthquake. Note: You can access the dataset used in this dashboard, and many others, on ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. You can learn how to make your own version of the Earthquake Watch dashboard by following this blog tutorial.
