Apollo News Snippets – November 2017

The September 2017 temperature departure map shows warm conditions across much of the planet with some pockets of cool weather over central Russia and Europe.
  • The September 2017 NOAA global climate report is out and it was the 4th hottest September on record behind 2014, 2015 and 2016. It was also the 41st consecutive September and the 393rd consecutive month above the 20th Century temperature average. Record warmth was recorded over parts of South America and large parts of Asia and Africa. It’s time for the American public to put pressure on Washington DC to do something about this global crisis!
    • We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) commonly here at Apollo Mapping so in honor of that, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and AWS.” And what I found was an excellent primer on how AWS, specifically Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), can be used to host a cloud GIS. You can read more about cloud-based GIS on AWS here – a big thanks to Penn State University for making this available to the general public!
