Interactive map of the Arctic
is a digital, interactive map
just launched by Greenpeace
with the North Pole at its centre.

From Greenpeace

The map features a number of static and dynamic layers that visualise the beauty of the Arctic, the threats it faces and our struggle to protect it.
The Arctic is under pressure from oil companies seeking to exploit its resources.
They see the melting of the sea ice not as a warning, but as a business opportunity.
Take a journey into the Arctic and explore for yourself its natural wonders, the threat of the encroaching oil industry, and follow the struggle to Save the Arctic.

Join the North Pole Expedition and follow the team as they make their way to the pole, with frequent, near-live, updates of their position and a geoblog of all the tweets, blogs, pictures and videos.
