Dashboards & Maps
The SRH has aggregated over 400 data sets and created a series of dashboards & maps meant to synthesize data related to important challenges facing the Western Hemisphere today. Dashboards & maps are created and hosted by FIU on native platforms and ArcGIS. The dashboards and maps are updated frequently as more data becomes available.
Feedback is always welcome and can be sent to SRH@FIU.EDU.
