Logo: TransAtlas
TransAtlas is an interactive map with data sets related to transportation and alternative fuels in the United States



Overview

TransAtlas is in interactive web-based geographic information system that allows users to explore a map containing alternative fueling stations, concentrations of alternative fueled vehicles, and other related data. It provides the ability to pan an zoom as well as perform queries of the data.

Inputs and Outputs

Inputs include: The map uses NREL's Alternative Fuels Database.[1]

Outputs include: Maps with the following information:

  • Alternative Fueling Stations (E85, CNG, Biodiesel and more)
  • Hybrid, Diesel, and Flex-Fuel vehicle densities
  • Biodiesel and Ethanol Production Facilities
  • Congressional Districts
  • Clean Cities Coalitions

Highlights

Data on concentrations of alternative fueled vehicles is helpful in plannning alternative fueling infrastructure; locations of alternative fueling stations is helpful in planning acquisitions of and incentives for alternative fueled vehicles.
