ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World

For readers with an interest in creating maps, the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World is a great resource. Describing itself as "the foremost collection of geographic information from around the globe," the Living Atlas offers a curated collection of maps, apps, and data layers that have been contributed by Esri partners and users. Visitors can search the Living Atlas by keyword, or they can browse the collection by content themes such as basemaps, boundaries, people, and environment. Readers curious to see how all this can be used will find roughly a dozen apps highlighting examples, such as Intact Habitat Near Me and the USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer. Those interested in learning more about using content in this collection should check out the What's New section on the main page, as well as the link to the Living Atlas blog. While the majority of the offerings in the Living Atlas are free, some require an organizational ArcGIS account for access. Those interested in contributing to the Living Atlas can upload their content for consideration (and receive suggestions for its metadata) at no charge.
