Atlas of Yellowstone Exhibit

Exhibit Description

The Atlas of Yellowstone exhibit, a joint project of the University of Oregon’s Museum of Natural and Cultural History and the Department of Geography’s InfoGraphics Lab, is now available for free digital download!

Inspired by the book, Atlas of Yellowstone (ucpress.edu), the exhibit features world-class cartography, vivid imagery, and a video exploring the natural wonders of the world’s first national park.

From landscapes to wildlife to the human presence in Greater Yellowstone, the exhibit illustrates the region's magnificence while demonstrating the importance of scientific research. Its content supports learning in history, geography, geology, biology, cartography, design, and more. The exhibit, like the atlas itself, is organized around four themes:

  • Yellowstone is important as a place, to both the nation and the world
  • Interactions of humans and nature immensely influence Yellowstone 
  • Yellowstone is connected across many scales and locations 
  • Yellowstone is dynamic, changing over time periods that range from eons to hours
