Mapping North American Environmental Issues

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation works with key mapping agency partners in Canada, Mexico, and the United States to promote understanding of significant continental-scale environmental issues through the North American Environmental Atlas.

Available map layers include renewable energy capacity, priority conservation areas, and other environmental themes. The CEC is also exploring innovative mapping techniques for these map layers, including the industrial pollutant mapping tool recently released for use with Google Earth. Certain printed maps are available by request. For example, a wall map of the major hydrological drainage basins, or watersheds, of North America is now offered. See the CEC Atlas website for more details.
