Atlas of a Changing Earth Coming to the Big Screen

Documentary Details

Atlas of a Changing Earth (ACE) is a short film that discusses how a new revolution in map making techniques can help us better understand climate change.

Stunning visualizations take viewers into the dynamic processes causing coastal glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica to melt and explores how rising seas could threaten coastlines the world over. Some of the data used in these visualizations were built by the Polar Geospatial Center and collaborators as part of the ArcticDEM and Reference Elevation Map of Antarctica (REMA) projects. These striking new images are produced by the confluence of satellites and supercomputers, revealing Earth in a degree of precise detail scarcely imagined a generation ago.

ACE is coming to the big screen this summer! Check the flyer below for showing locations.
