Digital Cartography [132]

Online maps produced by news organizations and other institutions

March 30, 2016

To open our round up of interactive maps, a new resource for those interested in forest data: Esri and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service unveiled, on March, 24, a new gallery of maps and apps that gives everyone access to US forestry data. The Engagement Portfolio opens the Forest Service’s rich content to a broad spectrum of users, engaging everyone from forestry professionals to conservation-minded laypeople. You can read the full press release here.

Among the resources available, the Forest Atlas of the United States caught our attention, but you should explore the full set of interactive maps and visualizations available – and all the other cool online maps we separated for you today:
