UArctic Atlas - Online Encyclopedia
  • Educators, Teachers
  • Students - in general
The UArctic Atlas is a comprehensive online encyclopedia on Arctic related information. Its main objective is to provide education and stimulate outreach of scientific Arctic related information in easily accessible and comprehensible visual form. Traditionally, only text based scientific information has reached a fairly narrow audience making the Arctic related information invisible for the non-scientific community. The Arctic Atlas aims at narrowing the gap between the scientific community and the public making the information more accessible to all levels in the society to the most current scientific information. The Atlas uses the state of the Art online mapping technology to visualize originally text-based information. The research outcomes are presented in easily adjustable interactive graphical images enabling easier analysis as well as comparison of the data in connection to the Arctic as a whole or specific regions.
