ABSTRACT: EnviroAtlas is an online collection of data, tools, and other resources that can be used to inform decisions related to the places we live, work, and play.  It has been built on a framework illustrating the benefits people receive from nature, also referred to as ecosystem goods and services (EGS). EGS underpin most aspects of human well-being, including water, security, and the economy. EnviroAtlas has been publicly available since 2014 and continues to inform decisions either directly through use by consultants or decision-makers, or indirectly through further research and education.  A consequence of readily accessible tools, like EnviroAtlas, is that they broaden the audience familiar with landscape ecology principles albeit users may not necessarily recognize them as such. This presentation will quickly highlight some of the new resources added to EnviroAtlas since IALE 2016, including new data, a new interactive map, time series, materials for educators, a change analysis tool, ecosystem markets data, and other resources.  It will also briefly show how EnviroAtlas is being used in the public domain, and will touch upon the direction in which EnviroAtlas is headed.
