Here is an amazing free resource for you teachers out there: Esri Atlas!

Not only can you explore other’s atlas creations, you can make your own to accompany your lessons.

Here is a little of what Esri said about their new tool:

“The Esri Thematic Atlas Sample App is a configurable web application that uses a collection of intelligent web maps with text, graphics, and images to talk about our world. The sample application allows the author to organize maps into groups with a specific sequence. The thematic grouping and order of the maps allows the users to move progressively through the map collection looking for patterns and exploring countries, provinces, counties, hometowns, and neighborhoods.”
