NEHA / EPA's EnviroAtlas Tool Informs Decisions, Research, and Education Webinar
Tuesday, February 25
1 PM EST
This webinar will give an overview of the EnviroAtlas tool, recent updates, and provide a short demo of the tool. The webinar will also include case study examples of how EnviroAtlas has been used by communities.
EnviroAtlas is a data-rich, web-based decision support tool that combines maps, analysis tools, downloadable data, and informational resources. It is used by states, tribes, communities, and individuals to help inform policy and planning decisions that impact the places where we live, learn, work and play. EnviroAtlas data are available for the entire U.S. via an online interactive map.
There have been several significant updates to EnviroAtlas in the last couple of years and other exciting new functionality is coming soon. Some of these updates include the development of a floodplain map for the conterminous U.S., the creation of fine (one square meter) land cover data covering the places where about 65 million people live, the addition of EPA regulated facilities (e.g., Superfund sites, Brownfields, etc), and a new tool allowing users to compare their watershed or Census tract with their county or state.
