Order the Atlas of Yellowstone, Second Edition from the University of California Press.

The InfoGraphics Lab has completed the Atlas of Yellowstone, Second Edition; a data-rich, state-of-the art, authoritative reference volume on the Greater Yellowstone Region.

The publication of the Atlas of Yellowstone, Second Edition celebrates the 150th anniversary of the founding of Yellowstone National Park—the first national park in the world. The atlas is an accessible, comprehensive guide that presents Yellowstone’s story through data-rich and beautiful maps and data visualizations. The Atlas of Yellowstone, Second Edition explores Yellowstone’s contribution to preserving and understanding natural and cultural landscapes, to informing worldwide conservation practices, and to inspiring national parks around the world while also learning about the many struggles the park faces in carrying out its mission. Ranging from Indigenous Americans and local economies to geysers and wildlife migrations, from the life of one wolf to the threat of wildfires, each page provides leading experts’ insights into the complexity and significance of Yellowstone. Key elements of the atlas include:

  • more than 1,000 maps, graphics, and photographs
  • contributions from more than 130 experts
  • detailed topographic maps of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks
  • exploration of Yellowstone National Park’s influence over 150 years on conservation practice, park management, and American culture
  • new, detailed visualizations of wildlife and carnivore interactions that take advantage of modern GPS technology to track individual animals and entire herds
  • place name origins for Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and the surrounding region
