EPA released an update of EJSCREEN, the Agency's publicly available award-winning environmental justice screening and mapping tool. EJSCREEN uses high resolution maps and a methodology for combining datasets to identify environmental burdens on vulnerable populations. This update is an important refresh of the environmental and demographic data contained in EJSCREEN and enhances the tool by adding new and improved functionality. An exciting new feature of the update is the addition of climate change indicators. Users can now add flood and sea level rise data for the first time. EPA will continue to expand the climate change indicators in upcoming updates. EPA's Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) data is also now an available map layer. To better support states and other technical users of EJSCREEN data, EPA has built an improved data dictionary and created downloadable data at the census tract level. Additional enhancements include improved source data on locations (ex: Superfund sites) and the ability to bring in shape files. This will allow users to use the data in various ways to meet their needs.
