CE3’s work on a framework for appropriate and useful decision support tools for state policymakers relating to energy and climate policies laid the foundation for a series of energy-related maps for the state. For a more detailed look at Ohio’s energy resources, see http://ohioenergyresources.com/energymaps/index.aspx.
As part of Ohio University's "Assuring Ohio's Competitiveness" climate change impact analysis, a series of maps was created that mapped data related to Ohio's energy resources. Click here to be directed the project website that hosts the energy resources maps.
The Nonpoint Source (NPS) Annual Monitoring Initiative and on-line reporting system for water quality was created for ODNR’s Division of Mineral Resources Management in 2005. Voinovich School staff, faculty and students continue to evaluate the success of the acid mine drainage reclamation projects throughout the coal-bearing region of Ohio in term of stream mile recovery, acid load reductions, and project costs annually. All reports, maps, water quality data, and stream health maps can be accessed at www.watersheddata.com.
