Mapping the Omission of Emissions: The Use of Mapping Technologies by Community Environmental Justice Organizations
The field of environmental justice offers many examples of the utility of maps and GIS for illustrating the disproportionate levels of environmental risk being endured by disadvantaged or marginalized racial, ethnic or income groups. However, these have predominantly focused on the distribution of environmental risk rather than focusing on the map-making parties themselves. This research directs attention towards the use of maps and GIS by "local" environmental justice organizations in their calls for environmental justice.
