The California Pollution Map
Back in April the LA Times mapped pollution in the city based on data from the California Environmental Protection Agency. The Pollution Burdens map provided a visualization of a number of pollution concerns in Los Angeles, including ozone concentration and drinking water quality.
The LA Times has now released a new pollution map of California using data from the California Environmental Protection Agency. The CEPA has scored census tract areas by their exposure and vulnerability to pollution. Using the California Pollution Risks map you can view the scores for any census tract in the state under a number of different pollution concerns.
Users can select a criteria from the drop-down menu and then mouse-over any census tract to view the CEPA score for the area. You can also use the search box to find a specific census tract on the map.
