Greenpoint Williamsburg Toxicity Map

November 01, 2015

A map to inform residents of north Brooklyn about environmental hazards.

Project Link: Greenpoint Williamsburg Toxicity Map

The NAG Greenpoint-Williamsburg ToxiCity Map is an interactive map of toxic “hot spots” in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Data used to compile this map came from city, state and federal sources, guided by on-the-ground knowledge from local activists. Click through the data layers on the map to understand some neighborhood trends such as population density and asthma hospital visits, and locate some specific sites such as former NuHart Plastics factory and the Exxon oil spill. Sites that have already been remediated and sites that require future remediation are included on this map.

This project was created with the help of Bowon Chung and Jessie Braden via Pratt’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative.

Technologies Used: - CartoDB.JS - Leaflet.JS - MapBox Studio Classic - CartoCSS - NodeJS - Pelias Geocoder - Handlebars.JS - JQuery
