Apollo News Snippets – August 2017

The June 2017 NOAA temperature departure map shows pockets of record warmth in Europe, Asia and Africa – with only cooler than average pockets over western and southern Asia and over the USA’s Gulf Coast.
  • The month August was named after Augustus Caesar so in honor of this Roman emperor, my Google search of the month was, “Augustus Caesar and GIS.” Looking through the various results, you might find this thesis by Krishan Sharma of San Diego State University who build a GIS system that shows the rise and fall of Rome’s various empires. It is really more of a plugin than a system per say, would have been cool to test it out!
  • The last month we were in Colorado’s second largest city and this month we travel to the East Coast for a review of New Haven, Connecticut’s GIS resources. And unfortunately their online GIS resources leaves much to be desired as it appears this landing page of “maps” is all they have to offer. These map links let you access a collection of PDFs but no actual GIS data nor an interactive web map is available.
