April 2014 ESIP Journal

ESIP is excited to announce we are releasing an updated Monitoring Map web tool available on the ESIP webpage ( The new version of the Monitoring Map contains over 13,000 separate monitoring sites with associated information served on a Google Earth platform. Sites are clustered together at the zoomed out level (notice the number in the pins – that is the number of sites that pin represents!). When you zoom into an area of interest the sites separate out to give the user a better visual for where monitoring is occurring. This is our solution of the “too many points on a map” syndrome that many of us encounter when we try to map out our information. Be sure to check it out! An updated User’s guide in the form of a slideshow is also available with the web tool, in case you get lost while navigating. If you would like to add your own programs to the map, connect with Christine Tilburg, ESIP Program Manager.
