Geographic Information System (GIS) Maps

WE ACT has produced 31 GIS maps designed to assist us in further accomplishing our goal to bring about a "green and clean" Northern Manhattan. The maps chronicle such elements as polluting facilities and childhood asthma hospitalizations, the diesel bus pollution corellation, waterfront property ownership and existing marine waste transfer and handling facilities. Access our GIS maps by clicking on any of the links below for each map and its corresponding metadata, or click any of the pictures to the right to go directly to a PDF version of each map.
