Client:   Commission for Environmental Cooperation

The Commission on Environmental Cooperation (CEC), a joint agency of the U.S., Canada and Mexico emerging from the NAFTA trade agreements, focuses on improving environmental conditions in North America. The CEC is known for assembling important spatial data and asked GreenInfo to rebuild their Environmental Atlas for the modern web to make their spatial information more publicly accessible.

GreenInfo Network rebuilt this mapping application to showcase the dozens of important data sets available through the Commission on Environmental Cooperation concerning environmental conditions in North America. It now leverages the latest modern web technologies, including a Leaflet map viewer and custom layer pickers with clear iconography. The application also supports English, Spanish, and French translations. Each data layer can be displayed and downloaded, and descriptions and legends are easily available.   Sliders allow adjustment of the transparency of each layer for visual clarity.  Recently added features include intuitive map customization options for reordering map layers, map sharing link that captures user's customized map for emailing to others, searchable data catalog, and a bulk data download tool.
