CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Network Data as a source of information for apps.

"We encourage participants to utilize the CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Network Data as a source of information for apps."

I am confused by this line. I want to write an app that encourages people to get to work in a more environmentally friendly way. What data is there available for that problem?

    Thanks for your question. We encourage the use of the Tracking API in your app, but it is not your only option. I recommend doing a search on data.gov for "environmental health" and any other key words - maybe "transportation"? I would also take a look at the data topics, such as "health".

    You could also do a google search for available APIs. Also, if you register for Esri's developer platform, you will have access to datasets that past users have made available, though you usually cannot export this data to use with other software.
