Description

The ventilation climate information system (VCIS) allows users to assess risks to values of air quality and visibility from historical patterns of ventilation conditions. It is available through an interactive, Internet map server. The Internet server allows maps of ventilation potential to be overlain with sensitive receptors, terrain features, or political boundaries. The data apply to local, regional, or national scales.
