5 Stars of 5 - Extremely Useful
Rating March 2014
By Kathleen Karle
Not so much a single tool as a comprehensive web site with case studies, documents, modeling and mapping applications on everything from air quality to wild fires. I gave it a high rating due to the extensive amount of material on the site but it would take a long time to review each document and to navigate on the site.
