Map of Ventura County Pesticide Use -2009

Source:  This page demonstrates many of the capabilities of the California Environmental Health Tracking Program (CEHTP) Agricultural Pesticide Use Web Map Service(WMS). This implementation is a custom OpenGeospatial Consortium WMS. Originating from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, County Agricultural Commissioners, Agricultural Growers, and Pesticide Operators, the Pesticide Use Report data has very detailed information across space and time. We attempted to summarize this information flexibly, but without making the interface too complex. Some of the options include:

Multiple years of reporting
Various measures of pesticide application intensity
Various geographic units in which data is displayed
Maps of individual pesticide chemicals or groups of chemicals
Maps of individual application sites (crops) or groups of sites
Statewide maps or maps by individual counties
