Ensure access to clean land, air, and water
Environmental agencies are tasked with keeping our environment and natural resources safe through environmental regulation. They use GIS to assess project impacts, inform and implement environmental policy, facilitate community engagement, monitor assets in real time, and provide transparency for better outcomes for all people. A geographic approach allows agencies to track the health of the environment, assess environmental justice, identify the source of pollutants, and prevent environmental hazards from contributing to a disaster.
