Description:

This resource explains TOXMAP environmental toxicology data and how to access, manipulate, and use it in the classroom. TOXMAPS are online environmental health maps published by the United States National Library of Medicine. They allow users to create and view maps of chemicals released into the air, ground, and water. Maps show the locations of facilities that have had chemical releases, and users can look up the type and amount of release and trends in contaminant levels over time. Users can also create nationwide or local area maps by searching the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Toxics Release Inventory by chemical name and/or place name.
