Energy in America

The Esri Thematic Atlas Sample App is a configurable web application that uses a collection of intelligent Webmaps with text, graphics, and images to talk about our world. The Esri Thematic Atlas Sample App is built on Esri technology using Webmaps and the JavaScript API. The Atlas was built to support GIS teams who need to share thematic information to a non-GIS based audience.


Contribute Campus Data to the Living Atlas

Esri wants you to help build the living atlas, particularly on the campus. Faculty, students, and facility managers will all have access to the same online basemaps, derived from and maintained with the authoritative content provided by the educational institution’s data stewards. For the facilities, this means online basemaps can then be used to manage your facilities, highlight student life, activities and events.
