Environmental Toxins on Google Maps
The Swedish Newspaper Aftonbladet has used Google Maps and CartoDB to create a map of the locations of environmental toxins in Sweden.
On the map are over 7,000 areas where there may be environmental toxins and the newspaper's readers can enter any address to find out which toxic areas are nearby. Readers can then click on the individual map markers to find out details about the polluted location and the level of risk.
