There is an exponential increase in the environmental issues globally causing various destructive events to both people and resources. This has raised concern to the industry stakeholders and the governments at local, regional, and global levels. Highland Library located in the City of Highland in California was not left behind. With their mission to educate the public of the importance of sound environmental management through learning, they had a problem in identifying the best media to use in communicating this to a wider audience. The project proposed the use of web maps for environmental learning. Using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript, ArcGIS Server, and ArcGIS Desktop, a web map application was developed that presented the identified environmental themes at different scale levels of the Library, City of Highland, County of San Bernardino, State of California, United States of America, and the World. With the application running through a browser on desktop computer, the library visitors were able to easily visualize and understand the environmental themes presented.
