Datasource datasource

This page contains links to datasources that are relevant for environmental investigations. Some of these datasets are already viewable on the maps on this site; visit https://publiclab.org/people where you can view and turn on layers by using the layer panel in the upper righthand corner: [![leaflet-Env-Layers.gif](/i/33575)](/i/33575?s=o) _To learn more about the Leaflet Environmental Layers project that powers the map shown above, and request additional layers to be added, visit https://publiclab.org/notes/sagarpreet/06-06-2018/leaflet-environmental-layer-library_ ###Large Governmental Data Banks Type of Data|Description|Link -------------------------|---------------------|--------------------- EPA's Environmental Dataset Gateway| EPA's official open data catalog, hosts all EPA data| https://edg.epa.gov/metadata/catalog/main/home.page NOAA's National Climate Data Center- Climate Data Online| Provides free access to NCDC's archive of global historical weather and climate data in addition to station history information.
