EnviroAtlas is a collection of interactive tools and resources that allows users to explore the many benefits people receive from nature, often referred to as ecosystem services. Key components of EnviroAtlas include the following:
- A multi-scaled Interactive Map with broad scale data for the lower 48 states and fine scale data for selected communities
- The Eco-Health Relationship Browser, which shows the linkages between ecosystems, the services they provide, and human health
- Ecosystem services information, GIS and analysis tools, and written resources
This video is a brief introduction on how to utilize the EnviroAtlas mapping platform that has been created by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This has great potential for the classroom and as a portal for students to explore the data on their own.
