Connecticut's environment

Working with the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, the Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) has put together a fabulous resource for those of us interested in Connecticut's environment -- Connecticut Environmental Conditions Online (CT ECO).

CT ECO combines Connecticut street maps with data on soil types and quality, land cover, above- and below-ground water resources, geological structures, and habitats for endangered species. Similarly to other online mapping interfaces, such as Google Maps, users can search for addresses and zoom in and out to see maps of whole counties or on scales as fine as 500 feet.
