Minimal Information Checklist and Metadata Application Profile for Geocoded Historical Industrial Sites Extracted from City Directories and Manufacturing Registries

The Minimal Information Checklist and Metadata Application Profile for Geocoded Historical Industrial Sites Extracted from City Directories and Manufacturing Registries were created for "Developing a Spatial Approach for Toxic Transferal from Industrial and Vacant Land Uses to Green Infrastructure (GI)" (Brown, Texas A&M, and UCSD) that examines vacant and industrial land uses, past and present, and impact GI conditions on community resilience and public health. The project's aims are 1) systematically describe, register and integrate several distinct streams of geo-referenced environmental and toxicant data that, when combined, allow for an empirical assessment of how well GI conditions are utilized to absorb potential impacts from vacant and industrial land uses; 2) explore associations between GI, neighborhood sociodemographic characteristics, hazardous land uses, and flood damage; and 3) leverage existing or develop new digital infrastructure based on the FAIR principles to make merged spatial data publicly available to communities, regulators, and other researchers in formats they can readily use and integrate into their work. This project is funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under an administrative supplement P42 ES013660-14S1.
