Declassified US Nuclear Targets Even though today’s nuclear targets list is classified, it probably doesn’t look dramatically different. The United States still has about 1,900 nuclear warheads deployed on missiles and bombers (with thousands more on reserve), ready to be launched at a moment’s notice and able to hit their targets within 30 minutes. This unstable situation is extremely risky and has repeatedly come close to triggering nuclear war by accident. Moreover, many of today’s hydrogen bombs are hundreds of times more powerful than the two atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The globe of economic complexity About close x The Globe of Economic Complexity The globe of economic complexity dynamically maps out the entire world production of goods to create an economic landscape of countries around the globe. Here's Everyone Who's Immigrated to the U.S. Since 1820 From 1820 to 2013, 79 million people obtained lawful permanent resident status in the United States. The interactive map below visualizes all of them based on their prior country of residence. The brightness of a country corresponds to its total migration to the U.S. at the given time.

Mapped: The world's nuclear power plants NUCLEAR | March 8. 2016. 17:19 Mapped: The world’s nuclear power plants From the latest crisis over plans for Hinkley Point in the UK, to Friday’s fifth anniversary of the Fukushima disaster, nuclear power plants are currently much in the news. To help provide a global overview of the nuclear power sector both today and throughout its history, Carbon Brief has produced this interactive map. It shows the location, operating status and generating capacity of all 667 reactors that have been built, or are under construction, around the world, ever since Russia’s tiny Obninsk plant became the first to supply power to the grid in 1954.

We think the best way is to ask you directly and so would be grateful if you could spare just a couple of minutes to answer our questionnaire. Exploring Mexico through Dynamic Web Maps One of the people I regard most highly here at Esri has created an online atlas of Mexico. He started it off as an Esri storymap, but as he continued to add content, it soon become a “story atlas.” As an educator I was immediately struck by how useful the atlas could be as a tool to teach and learn about Mexico. I am continually amazed and also hear from educators at how little American students really know about their neighbor to the south.
Presenting gvSIG Online: the solution for Spatial Data Infrastructures on Open Source software During the last International gvSIG Conference a new product added to the gvSIG Association catalogue was presented for the first time. We think it will be well received because it meets an every time more and more need to have a solution for implementing Spatial Data Infrastructures, using open source software and reducing implementation costs of the current market alternatives. gvSIG Online is result of the experience accumulated by the gvSIG Association at the Spatial Data Infrastructure projects implementation of all types and in any sector, from petrol companies to local administrations. But, what is gvSIG Online? We can define the product in a few lines… “gvSIG Online is an integral platform for the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) implementation, 100% open source software.
