EnviroAtlas Communities

This map shows currently available EnviroAtlas communities and communities that are under development. By 2019, EnviroAtlas will grow to include over 50 communities in the United States. Selection of these communities is based on: 

  • geography,
  • ongoing local research,
  • data availability,
  • and the ability to leverage other EPA projects.

In general, EnviroAtlas defines the community boundaries by the census block groups falling within the census urbanized area for the main community in the area. This means that EnviroAtlas communities often contain all or part of multiple municipalities.
