Visualizations of spatially–referenced energy data can provide insight into regional, industrial, and economic factors that influence energy consumption and generation across the United States. Federal agencies collect information on energy production, use, natural resources, and energy infrastructure and this data can be visualized in maps and other charts to show how energy is generated and consumed across the country and world. Maps of natural resources can also help energy project developers optimize the location of their project in order to reduce environmental risks.

The maps and visualizations on this tab are a small sample of the types of informative visualizations that can be created using data from the federal government and elsewhere. When you click on the images or titles below, you will be leaving the website.
