    I was catching up on my reading yesterday, among other things, going through Comunicacion Ambiental's report on a seminar in Buenos Aires on environmental communication.  I recommend the article (in Spanish), by the way, for a good discussion of some of the issues facing reporting and communication on environmental issues.

     

    The Environmental Atlas for Buenos Aires

     

    Mentioned in the CA report was an "Environmental Atlas of the City of Buenos Aires."  I clicked through to find a very good interactive site providing lots of information and perspective on the geography and environment-related aspects of the greater Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (the Autonomous City and its surrounding environs).  The resources include thematic maps, diagrams and graphics, explanatory text, ground-level images, satellite photos and bibliographies. 

    The site is built on the Adobe (formerly Macromedia) Flash platform, so you made need to make a free upgrade of the Flash player in order to access all its components.  At present it is only available in Spanish.

    I pride myself on knowing many, if not most, of the worthwhile tools and resources on the state of the environment in Latin America and the Caribbean, but I somehow missed this one.  A tip of the hat and hearty thanks to Comunicacion Ambiental for alerting me to it.  This site will be certainly added to the Temas toolbox.
