For example, I zoomed in on my little corner of Philadelphia and learned that a cluster of dry cleaners represents the majority of EPA monitored pollutant-causing producers. Zooming out a bit, I did find some type of factory that appears to have been cited with an EPA code violation in 1998. It’s not all that clear because some of the data points are still blank. Understandably, considering the massive amount of data–stored in a variety of formats–that need to be synchronized. Even with these kinks, we give Data.gov TWO BIG THUMBS UP.
Great site, but needs quite a bit of work to fill in the many holes in data indicated as provided by the site. Otherwise, it shows a lot of promise!
