Superlative climate science communication must be both digestible and informative to a broad audience. Data visualization of climate science requires a balance of explanatory text, eye-catching design, and relevant data. Too much text and users may not fully engage with the information, too much design and users may get lost in the “whizbang” of the presentation, and too much data may lead users to get overwhelmed by scientific jargon or the numbers. Through software such as the Esri suite and Qlik, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Change Indicator suite is taking advantage of dynamic, interactive tools and dashboards that can provide users with a more compelling vehicle for climate science communication without overwhelming. This poster displays traditional EPA Climate Change Indicator communication methods, visuals of upgraded interactives currently available to the public, and concepts for future development and release.
