According to the US EPA, over 95 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) greenhouse gases were generated by the landfill industry in 2018. That's a lot of greenhouse gas! But, who is passing the most, and from which states?
In an effort to demonstrate the value of the visual data capabilities of ArcGIS, the Sniffer Robotics team is presenting the EPA data on their publicly avialable Geospatial Portal. The web based is a platform for communicating complex data in an efficient and effective manner.
Through the use of this online tool, the user is able to readily identify the largest CO2e emitters by company and by location. Individual site details can be obtain by clicking on the location pins. Over five years of data is contained within the portal as reported by nearly 1,300 sites through the US EPA. This data can be found by clicking on the link titled "U.S. Landfill Annual GHG Emissions".
