Visualizing Landsat data is always quite amazing. Something new from Esri recently enables users of ArcGIS Online to quickly and easily view historical Landsat Data – enter the Landsat Lense. Simply visit the Lense webmap and start panning the lense around the map. Users can slect a year of desired imagery along with a Landsat layer theme, including natural color, Infrared, Veg Index and more.
You may think that you are happy, however, how happy is your country or region as a whole? Each year, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network releases the results of a survey of the state of global “happiness.” This World Happiness Report ranks 155 countries by their self-reported sense of well being. Kudos to Esri for putting details of the report in this friendly to use Story Map.
