A great tool for earth science educators

I have always been trying to use more data in the classroom and this App delivers exactly that with a guided tour of polar change and how it relates to sea level rise. Especially like the NOAA inundation maps and those showing ice sheet speed.

Amazing Application

An absolutely amazing tool that allows users to interact with climate data without any third party interpretation. Very engaging and easy to use. Would recommend to anyone, especially those in an educational role.
