We created the Earth Dashboard as a "situation room" for the planet. Earth Dashboard combines the rigor of scientific data and engaging visualization techniques with the storytelling power of environmental news media to present a new way of understanding and confronting the accelerating planetary emergency.
From wildfires to air pollution to coral reef bleaching, Earth Dashboard tracks the forces imperilling the natural systems that support life on earth, in near-real time, as they are happening. It presents a constant flow of reliable, accessible scientific data on what can and must be done to protect the global commons – our vital resources and ecosystems.
The Earth Dashboard is a joint project of the Global Commons Alliance, the largest coalition of scientific and conservation organizations, Resource Watch, an open source platform which compiles hundreds of visualized data sets from the world’s most reliable sources, and earth.nullschool.net, a visualization engine for near-real time global weather conditions, in partnership with popular environmental news site Mongabay, and leading digital news distributer NowThis Earth.
