Environmental Impact Data Collaborative

The Environmental Impact Data Collaborative (EIDC) enables researchers, community groups, and policymakers to analyze and visualize data in ways that help them make environmental policy more effective and just. Our platform allows users to discover, access, merge, transform, analyze, visualize, and discuss hundreds of datasets with billions of rows of information. Read our Annual Report for more information. If you would like access to our platform please request access here.


EIDC’s cloud-based platform makes it easier to collaborate in real-time on large datasets and complex projects. Our platform hosts hundreds of datasets and has built-in capabilities to analyze and visualize them. The platform allows users with various backgrounds to work together, in Python, R, SAS, SQL, or Stata.

Research and Data

EIDC researchers are advancing research in four areas — Environmental Justice, Federal Spending, Energy, and Air and Water. We provide data and analysis for memos, reports, research articles and dashboards on environmental justice and climate change policy projects. Check out what we’re exploring through the EIDC.

Guides and Resources

The team has developed guides and tutorial videos on how to start using the data collaborative and how to perform research in specific areas. In addition to these instructional tools, we also share to the public some of our platform members’ projects, as well as a Knowledge Hub that comprehensively compiles and stores research materials on essential environmental domains:
