GIS for Environmental Regulation
From Megan Martinez
Environmental agencies are tasked with keeping our environment and communities safe from harmful pollutants. They use GIS to assess project impacts, inform policy and provide guidance, facilitate community engagement, monitor environmental assets in real time, and provide transparency for better outcomes for all. A geographic approach allows agencies to track the health of the environment, assess community burdens, identify the source of pollutants, and prevent environmental hazards from becoming a disaster. GIS provides better insights, faster. This webinar explores the use of GIS to promote equitable access to clean land, air, and water in our communities. Watch this webinar recording to understand the GIS tools you need to ensure compliance through review, permitting, and inspections. This webinar is the third and final installment in our series for environmental professionals.
