In addition to the robust data searchable on our Data Explorer tool, the Tracking Program has developed several topic-specific dashboards to put information into the hands of public health planners, the media, and the public. These interactive data tools provide a more complete, detailed picture of important environmental health topics all in one place. View our “Powered by Tracking” dashboards and learn more about important issues that affect environmental health below.
Tracking partnered with CDC’s Climate & Health Program to develop the Heat and Health Tracker. This tool allows you to see how extreme heat affects your county. View local, timely data and info to help communities to prepare for and respond to extreme heat events. Search to explore your county, populations who are at risk, and response resources.
The Melanoma Dashboard was created through a partnership between the CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control and CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program and provides a wide range of relevant state and local data to help communities address their unique melanoma prevention needs. Get quick facts and information or use maps to view state-level data on melanoma and ultraviolet radiation.
Created in partnership with CDC’s Radiation and Health program, CRC SimPLER is a free online tool to help emergency planners understand their current capacity, potential bottlenecks, and additional resource needs when planning for population monitoring during response to a radiation emergency.
