Take a Virtual Tour of the American Environmental Industry

Using powerful, user-friendly mapping technologies, Environmental Resource Web (erWEB) is helping consumers find environmental products and services.

Using powerful, user-friendly mapping technologies, Environmental Resource Web (erWEB) is helping consumers find environmental products and services.


Old fashioned printed maps are giving way to online mapping services that enable users to plot locations and get driving directions by simply entering street addresses. Today's virtual maps can not only plot locations and give directions; they can also be used to present satellite images, showcase businesses, and provide contact information including web links and phone numbers. erWEB is embracing this advanced technology by utilizing the best new dynamic, interactive, and draggable mapping services.

The locations of all erWEB organizations can now be viewed on 2-D street maps and satellite images using Google Maps. You can use your mouse to click and drag these maps to view hidden areas, or you can smoothly zoom and pan around the map. You can even get detailed directions to and from erWEB businesses using this service.

Example:

Consumers can also search for erWEB businesses in 3-D using World Wind - NASA's new 3-D global information system. Although World Wind was built to showcase geophysical data derived from airplanes and satellites (including high resolution topography, imagery, and animations), we have discovered that it also makes a great visual browser; and because millions of people use this software everyday, erWEB member organizations are now receiving more exposure than ever. To make all 300+ member organizations easier to find on World Wind, we have created separate data layers for each of our 7 consumer categories:

Renewable Energy
Sustainable Buildings and Interiors
Recycling
Transportation
Education & Advocacy
Research, Development, and Consulting
Water Resources
