Title:
EnviroAtlas

Abstract:
Though critically important to human well-being, ecosystem services are often overlooked. EnviroAtlas seeks to measure and communicate the type, quality, and extent of the goods and services that humans receive from nature so that their true value can be considered in decision-making processes. Using EnviroAtlas, many types of users can access, view, and analyze diverse information to better understand how various decisions can affect an array of ecological and human health outcomes. EnviroAtlas is available to the public and houses a wealth of data and research. 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
