TOXMAP: A GIS Information Portal to Environmental Health Resources
Entry ID: TOXMAP
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has an extensive collection of
environmental health information, including bibliographic and factual data on
hazardous chemical substances in its TOXNET databases. TOXNET also provides
access to the EPA Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) data, which covers air, water,
and land releases, as reported by industrial facilities around the United
States. Built using ArcIMS, NLM has developed a web-based system, TOXMAP, in
which users can dynamically create maps that show where TRI chemicals are
released and directly link to the appropriate chemical data records in TOXNET.
By extracting the associated regional geographic terms from the displayed map
(e.g., rivers, towns, county, state), TOXMAP also provides customized chemical
and/or region-specific searches to NLM's bibliographic biomedical databases
resources.
