WEB-BASED GEOSPATIAL DATA AND ANALYSIS TOOLS
The Nevada Data Browser was developed by the Landscape Ecology Branch of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) located in Las Vegas, NV with the assistance and collaboration of the Lockheed-Martin Environmental Services Office, also located in Las Vegas, NV. Its purpose is to centralize and distribute the geospatial data used to create the land cover and vertebrate habitat models and other land stewardship data produced for the Nevada eco-regional component of the Southwest Regional GAP Analysis Project (SW ReGAP).
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) Dynamic Maps, GIS Data, and Analysis Tools website provides maps, data, and tools for renewable energy resources.
The NREL GIS team analyzes
other energy resource geospatial data, and produces a collection of maps using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology.
The EPA's RE-Powering America's Land initiative encourages Siting Renewable Energy on Potentially Contaminated Land and Mine Sites. As part of this initiative, EPA has developed a Renewable Energy Interactive Mapping Tool, a Google Earth KMZ file. This tool allows viewing EPA's information about siting renewable energy on contaminated land and mine sites.
The Solar Energy Environmental Mapper is a web-based application that displays environmental data related to utility-scale solar energy development for the southwest U.S. This site provides access to screening-level geospatial solar energy environmental data, and allows the user to explore and view maps, access data, and perform analyses. The Solar Energy Environmental Mapper tool was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and Bureau of Land Management, and developed by the Argonne National Laboratory using data collected and analyzed in the Solar Energy Development Programmatic EIS.
