Industrial Accidents on Google Maps

Risque Industriel is a Google Map of industrial accidents in France that have occurred during the last thirteen years.

A heat map provides an overview of the concentration of accidents. It displays over 650 hazardous sites responsible for over 2,000 incidents. French residents can enter an address into the map to find out the location of the hazardous site closest to them.

A marker is dropped on the map to display the exact location of the site and the distance to the location is displayed above the map. A link to view details of the industrial site and its accident record is also displayed.
