Updates to the Living Atlas Website

We made several enhancements to the Living Atlas of the World website ( that make it easier to browse, filter, and contribute to the Living Atlas. We continuously strive to provide the best experience for our users, and we hope these changes help us meet this goal. This release includes two new languages, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. Updates have also been made to the Home tab (or landing page) and the My Contributions tab. We rearranged the Home tab to make discovering Living Atlas content more straightforward, and we made subtle improvements to the My Contributions tab to make contributing easier.

Read on for more details.
