Tracking California's Pesticide Mapping Tool provides the ability for users to view pesticide use information through maps, charts, and tables. With this information, users can explore pesticide use and find their own patterns in the data.
This webinar will include an overview of the Pesticide Use Reports (PUR) managed by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, examples of other data visualizations using PUR data, and an overview of the features of our Pesticide Mapping Tool, and a short demo of the tool in action.
Learn more about the tool
Where are agricultural pesticides applied within California? How many are used near a specific location? Has pesticide usage increased or decreased over time? These are questions that the agricultural pesticide mapping tool from PHI's Tracking California can help answer, now with an updated interface and additional features.
With this tool, users can quickly and easily explore data for agricultural pesticide applications that occurred from 1991 through 2016 in California. The tool enables users to view agricultural pesticide application data at different geographies (state, county, square-mile) and also provides information about the amounts used over time within those geographies. Users can further customize their maps to view use by specific pesticide, pesticide category (with fumigants and neonicotinoids now available as options), crop, and year.
Tracking California, formerly the California Environmental Health Tracking Program, is a program of the Public Health Institute in partnership with the California Department of Public Health.
