Apollo News Snippets – July 2019

The May 2019 NOAA temperature departure map shows pocket of record warmth along Brazil’s coastline and in southern Africa; while the middle of North America and much of western Europe saw cooler spring temperatures.
  • The new and improved (well the data they use at least) May 2019 NOAA Global Climate report is out and well of course, it was warm – as it has been this entire decade. May 2019 was the 4th warmest May on record, following 2016, 2015 and then 2017 – notice a trend? The global temperature was some 0.85 degrees Celsius (1.53 degrees Fahrenheit) above the 20th Century average, do think if we were a full 1 degree Celsius above average the Trump administration would act then? I think you know the answer to that question…
  • Did you know July 2nd is World UFO day? Well I didn’t either so in honor of this conspiracy-happy holiday, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and UFO.” And well, wouldn’t you know it, there is actually a website dedicated to UFO sightings and airport proximity. So cool and nerdy, thanks Michigan State University students Cast, Heymes and Schrantz!
  • Last month we reviewed the online GIS resources of Nashua, New Hampshire (but we did say Connecticut, woops!!!), and for the July review we stay on the East Coast, traveling down to Jersey City, New Jersey. And okay, this was a pretty big swing and a miss:
    Jersey City, NJ GIS Website (yes, this is City Planning but it’s the closest we could find)
    Jersey City, NJ GIS Contacts (sorry but it’s the same link as above)

    Jersey City, NJ GIS Web Map (the only one we could find but this seems to prove they have mapping folks!)
    Jersey City, NJ GIS Map Collections (nothing to offer, sorry)
    Jersey City, NJ GIS Direct Downloads (well this is surprisingly robust and more proof they have GIS folks)
