Visualizing DataThrough Neighborhood Equity Maps
A major challenge that cities face across the country is how to create climate policy while prioritizing social equities in their communities.
To achieve climate and social justice, cities and communities have expressed a strong need for accurate data on equity indicators. GEM provides dynamic visual maps at a neighborhood scale to aid community collaboration.
The Greenlink Equity Map (GEM) is an online map designed to help you visualize equity-related issues and how burdens are spread across communities.
Whether you are a resident, community organization, city staff, or a policymaker, GEM provides critical data resources to build strong city-community partnerships and equitable solutions.
Cities that work together with impacted communities are more likely to identify the most equitable solutions and climate actions because of genuine community collaborations.
