Greenhouse Gas Emissions on Google Maps

The United States Environment Protection Agency has launched a Greenhouse Gas Data Publication Tool that allows users to view and sort 2010 greenhouse gas emissions data from over 6,700 facilities.

The tool uses Google Maps to allow the user to search and display the data in a number of ways, including by facility, location, industrial sector, and the type of GHG emitted. The tool can be used by individuals and communities to identify nearby sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

As well as providing the useful map view the site also includes tools to view the data in a number of different chart views.
