From geographer Cooper Thomas of the Esri Story Maps Team, An Atlas of Electricity provides visitors with a fascinating, multimedia glimpse into how electricity is created and distributed in the United States. This eight part story map opens with a description of the 2003 northeast blackout, an incident that signaled the fragility of the North American power grid. From here, this story map portrays American electricity usage, production, and transmission via a series of interactive maps. Next, utilizing a number of graphs and further interactive maps, this exhibit explores the different natural resources that Americans have turned to for energy throughout history and today. Finally, this exhibit concludes by turning to the future of electricity in the U.S, focusing on recent upgrades and innovations in the world of electricity. As a whole, this story serves to demystify electricity production and transmission in the U.S. in an engaging, accessible manner.
