TOXMAP now includes the 2006 Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data. TOXMAP's cancer and health data has been updated, and health risk information links and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Evironmental Health news have been added.

In addition, TOXMAP now offers more detailed roads at a variety of map scales. (Roads and other reference data can be hidden from maps via the "Other Data" subtab.) TOXMAP is a Geographic Information System (GIS) from the Division of Specialized Information Services of the US National Library of Medicine (NLM) that uses maps of the United States to help users visually explore data from the EPA TRI and Superfund Program.
