The People’s Weather Map
The People’s Weather Map utilizes Geographical Information System (GIS) mapping technology to catalog and index historical and contemporary narratives surrounding extreme weather events. User-contributed narratives, photographs, and personal stories put a human face on these distant and extreme events. Through GIS, these individuals’ experiences are layered with related scientific and historical information as well as projected narratives based upon current climate change models.
