Environmental Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program (BenMAP)
Abstract BenMAP is a Windows-based program that uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to estimate the health impacts and economic benefits of changes in air quality at the city and regional scale.  +
DIA/Approach BenMAP is primarily intended as a tool for
BenMAP is primarily intended as a tool for estimating the health impacts, and associated economic values, associated with changes in ambient air pollution. It accomplishes this by running health impact functions, which relate a change in the concentration of a pollutant with a change in the incidence of a health endpoint.
nge in the incidence of a health endpoint.  +
DIA/CaseStudies U.S. and international case studies are available at http://www.epa.gov/air/benmap/docs.html.  +
DIA/Inputs Inputs to health impact functions typically include: * the change in ambient air pollution level * health effect estimate * the baseline incidence rate of the health endpoint * the exposed population.  +
