The Live Jurassic World Dashboard Map

The huge theme park island in the 2015 movie Jurassic World is largely run from a central control room. One whole wall of this control room is dominated by an enormous dashboard, featuring a map of the theme park island and what are presumably live camera and data feeds.

Sergio Domenech of Esri Spain decided to recreate the Jurassic World control dashboard in Esri maps. You can play with his interactive recreation of the dashboard at Jurassic World Dashboard. The dashboard was created using features which are available to anybody using the ArcGIS platform.

The central map in the control dashboard shows La Palma in the Canary Islands. The island bears a marked similarity to the fictional island of Isla Nublar where the Jurassic World theme park is located. The data and webcam images used in the control dashboard all come from the La Palma Open Data site.

You can read more about how the dashboard was made in this JuraGIS Park story map. You can also read more about the map (in Spanish) on the Spanish Esri blog.

You can explore the renowned Jurassic World entertainment complex in more detail using the Jurassic World Map. This custom designed interactive map of the world's latest, and some say most dangerous theme park, features the locations of hotels, restaurants, rest rooms and all the park's best rides and shows.

Due to unforeseen circumstances all those park facilities are now closed. In fact if you click on the markers on the map you will discover that all these facilities have now suffered a little dinosaur damage. In fact the whole park appears to now be closed.
