EnviroMapper is a Web-based interactive mapping tool for viewing and querying environmental information. This application allows users to zoom in to an area, or enter a state, county, city, ZIP code, or watershed to generate maps that contain environmental information stored in EPA's Envirofacts Warehouse. The type of environmental information includes: Superfund sites, drinking water, toxic and air releases, hazardous waste, and water discharge permits. One can also view this information in context by adding features to the map, including major roads, railroads, churches, hospitals, schools, populated places, counties, states, streams, streets, water bodies, watersheds, rivers, and federal lands. A feature called OpenLink allows users to enhance their webpages with dynamically-generated map images.
