EJSCREEN: Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool

Resource: EJSCREEN: Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool

A new mapping tool gives US citizens a detailed look at the environmental quality of their local neighborhood through a combination of environmental and demographic indicators in maps and reports. Statistics for air pollution, water quality, traffic levels and more are all included on the online map, which is freely available for anyone to use and makes a great teaching tool for educators. Students can use this tool to compare environmental statistics for their school’s geographic area versus other colleges or contrast numerous neighborhoods and geographic regions.
