Salon: Federal Toxmap shutters, raising the ire of pollution researchers

Salon: Federal Toxmap shutters, raising the ire of pollution researchers. “Earlier this year, with little explanation, the NLM announced that it would be ‘retiring’ the Toxmap website on Dec. 16, 2019. The library did not respond directly to queries on Monday about what was meant by “retiring,” but by Tuesday morning, the Toxmap website had been taken down and visitors to the former URL were met with a message acknowledging the closure and pointing visitors to other potential sources of information.” Toxmap was an online app that aggregated pollution data from government agencies.
