EnviroAtlas Community Component Fact Sheet

Towns and cities rely on clean air, water, green space, and other natural amenities for economic sustainability and quality of life, yet their benefits are not always fully understood or considered in local decisions. EPA and its partners are producing EnviroAtlas to help communities better use environmental assets for public good. The community component is based on 1-meter resolution landcover data. Information derived from these data is summarized by census block groups. Development of the community component is currently underway for 50 cities and towns of varying size, location, demographic makeup, and environmental and health risks.
