EPA launch Interactive GIS facility


The EPA have recently launched their interactive GIS facility. It is available through the home page of the EPA web-site or click here. Called ENVision, the facility provides access to a wide range of environmental data sets held by the EPA.

For example maps showing the locations of air quality monitoring stations, hydrometric stations and IPPC Licenced facilities are available.

Particularly relevant for UEP researchers, the site also hosts CORINE land cover data sets for 1990 and 2000 as well as detailed soil and sub soils databases.
