NLM Resource Update: TOXMAP mortality data updated

From Toni Yancey:

TOXMAP now has updated mortality data <http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/main/health.htm> and a new look for
its News. http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov

Other TOXMAP updates include:

* the ability to enter map descriptions to saved search results

* a TOXMAP widget
<http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/news/2009/07/try-the-toxmap-widget.htm
l> and

* a TOXMAP toolbar
<http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/news/2009/07/try-the-toxmap-toolbar.ht
ml> .

The TOXMAP widget
<http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/widgets/toxmapWidget.html>
(http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/widgets/toxmapWidget.html)

allows you or your users to launch a TOXMAP search from your blog, wiki,
or Web page. Enter a ZIP code into the widget to see a map of TRI
facilities and Superfund NPL sites, or click “More info” to go to the
TOXMAP home page.

The TOXMAP Toolbar <http://toxmap.mylibrarytoolbar.com/>
(http://toxmap.mylibrarytoolbar.com/) lets you search TRI releases,
Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) sites by contaminant, or TRI
facilities and Superfund NPL sites by ZIP code– all from your browser
search box.

TOXMAP is a Geographic Information System (GIS) from the Division of
Specialized Information Services (http://sis.nlm.nih.gov
<http://sis.nlm.nih.gov> ) of the US National Library of Medicine (NLM)
(http://www.nlm.nih.gov <http://www.nlm.nih.gov> ) that uses maps of the
United States to help users visually explore data from the US
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Toxics Release Inventory and
Superfund Program.
