Now, the city of Asheville, North California, has launched a Climate Justice Data Map with the aim of handling local climate threats better.

The scale considers the ethnic make-up of individual neighbourhoods, as well as their energy consumption and susceptibility to intense heat and illnesses. It also considers each area’s capacity to act during emergencies.

In future, using visualisation and analysis, neighbourhoods will receive the information and resources needed to react independently to issues arising.
