Often, government isn’t aware of the hazard, nor the extent of it.
Goals and Objectives
Provide environmental stewardship to protect a clean and healthy environment.
Big Data and analytics, data visualization, and geospatial tools in a cloud-based framework to enable analysis and informed decision making – for example, cloud-based advanced pollution and waterborne pathogen monitoring systems to predict air quality degradation and predict blooms for early action; Cloud-based services platform for submitting and sharing environmental information, monitoring, and trend analysis among ecosystem partners; cloud-based portals to support permitting
Use Case Summary
By providing communities, individuals, businesses, and state and local governments accurate information to effectively participate in managing human health and environmental risks, federal governments are protecting clean air, land, and water and reducing environmental risks.
