Interactive Tools


The California Wildfire Interactive Visualizations consists of interactive maps and graphs that provide an opportunity to explore the spatial and temporal complexity of the wildfire data presented in our July 2020 report, ‘The Public Health Dimensions of California Wildfire and Wildfire Prevention, Mitigation and Suppression’, which outlines trends in wildfire frequency and severity, discusses mitigation strategies to reduce wildfire risk, and examines the public health dimensions of wildfires and wildfire mitigation in California. 


The California Solar Map is an interactive mapping tool that visualizes data on distributed solar (PV) adoption in California. The data include distributed solar deployment rates by census tract, environmental justice (EJ) group, utility service territory, and historical data by year (1998-2017).

Energy storage peaker plant replacement project

Peaker Technical Documentation For the Energy Storage Peaker Plant Replacement Project, we identify peaker power plants across nine states that may be prime candidates for replacement based on operational and grid characteristics, and whose replacement may yield the greatest health, environment and equity co-benefits. Findings for Arizona, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Texas are available. These findings include state-level summaries, interactive data visualization tools, technical documentation, and a summary of the policy and electricity market landscape.

Richmond Emissions Inventory

The Richmond Emissions Inventory mapping tool visualizes emissions data from permitted facilities in Richmond, CA and provides information about sensitive populations in the area (schools, elderly care facilities, child care facilities, and others). It also incorporates environmental justice data from CalEnviroScreen 3.0 as a customizable background layer.

Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Waste Mapping Tool

The Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Waste Mapping Tool includes interactive visualizations that show waste generation and handling from oil and gas development in Pennsylvania as reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP).

California Power Map

The California Power Map is a mapping tool that provides, compares and visualizes data on California’s fossil fuel and bioenergy power plants. These data include the location of the plants, the demographics of nearby populations, and historical data about operations and greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions (2010-present) for all California fossil fuel                                                                                                               and bioenergy plants 10 megawatts and larger.
