GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) developed the Science on a Sphere projection software for interactive 3D museum displays in 2004. Now, NOAA has released a free app to bring the same information, drawn from 140+ datasets and including real-time information, to bring geographic animations to the small screen. Users can track storms, monitor ocean temperature, check cropland, watch air traffic, map earthquakes, and much, much more. SOS Explorer or SOSx is available for iOS and Android. sos.noaa.gov/sos-explorer/about-sos-explorer/
