TOXMAP
Air and water quality issues over the past 20 years have developed into a growing global public concern. Environmental quality data was at first only accessible to policy makers and scientists. Now citizens of many nations are requesting environmental quality data that provides information about the healthiness of air and water in particular locations. This demand for data is prevalent in the US for use in supporting or refuting concerns of environmental advocacy groups. TOXMAP, an environmental quality database provided by the US National Library of Medicine, is designed for nontechnical people interested in learning about air and water pollutants in their area. Pollution is reported as toxic releases from commercial and military activities. The site provides information from a variety of resources including the EPA's Toxics Release Inventory and the Superfund program.Data is available for most metropolitan areas in the continental US, Alaska, Hawaii, and the American territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Marianas, and Puerto Rico/US Virgin Islands. Users can navigate the site using a point-and-click interactive map of the states and territories. Symbols representing selected toxic releases are displayed on the map, which shows cities and major highways in the vicinity of the incident. Other buttons provide details about release trends and remediation for a particular chemical. Data about a particular release can also be obtained using the site's search feature to type in queries or make selections from a list of chemicals. Demographic and mortality data for the map's regions are also available for the time periods in which the toxic release data was collected. Text format data can be downloaded and imported into spreadsheet or statistical software. This simple-to-use site is an excellent starting point for collecting data about environmental quality issues. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels. --- B. R. Shmaefsky, Kingwood College.

Who Named It? aims to present "a complete survey of all medical phenomena named for a person," as well as biographies of those people. This project should eventually provide over 15,000 eponym entries and over 6,000 biographical entries, about double the current numbers. The database is searchable, and the options for browsing include A-Z lists of names and eponyms, subject categories, biographies grouped by country, and female biographies. Some of the "biographies" are of fictional characters, such as Alice in Wonderland, or even places, such as Malta. The subject category browse option leaves much to be desired. There are 202 categories, with a number of duplicates--for instance, "Literature" shows up four times, and only one of these instances links to an entry (interestingly, none of the fictional eponyms show up under this category). A hierarchical rather than alphabetical arrangement of categories would be easier to navigate. The eponymous and biographical entries are generally a few sentences to a few paragraphs in length, and usually have a brief bibliography of primary sources.
