White House officials launched a new initiative Wednesday that they said would help local communities plan for the effects of climate change by providing them with troves of government data.
The Obama administration hopes to “leverage open data resources and other data sets to make communities more resilient,” White House adviser John Podesta told reporters.
“Hundreds of thousands of infrastructure and geographical features across the U.S. will be made public by the [U.S. Geological Survey], the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense and the National Geospacial Intelligence Agency,” Podesta said. “These data will be crucial to helping communities prepare for floods and other climate impacts.”
