Other TOXMAP updates include:
- the ability to enter map descriptions to saved search results
- a TOXMAP widget and
- a TOXMAP toolbar.
The TOXMAP widget allows you or your users to launch a TOXMAP search from your blog, wiki, or Web page. Enter a ZIP code into the widget to see a map of Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) facilities and Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) sites, or click "More info" to go to the TOXMAP homepage.
The TOXMAP Toolbar lets you search TRI releases, Superfund NPL sites by contaminant, or TRI facilities and Superfund NPL sites by ZIP code-- all from your browser search box.
TOXMAP is a Geographic Information System from the Division of Specialized Information Services of the US National Library of Medicine® that uses maps of the United States to help users visually explore data from the US Environmental Protection Agency Toxics Release Inventory and Superfund Program.
