The NPL Superfund Footprint mapper has been created with a supplemental grant from the NIEHS Superfund Research Program, as part of the Columbia University Superfund Research Program on the Health Effects and Geochemistry of Arsenic and Manganese (NIEHS 3 P42 ES010349-10). Additional support was provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration under Contract NASA NNG08HZ11C.

This online mapping project was undertaken as part of the Columbia University Superfund Research Program (SRP) Research Translation Core. Meredith Golden, RTC Co-PI, provided the overall project management. The CIESIN RTC geospatial technology team was led by Tricia Chai-Onn with assistance from Kytt MacManus, and Gregory Yetman (now with Esri Canada). These individuals together are responsible for the design, data collection, conditioning, and development of the interactive mapping service.

Additional information technology programming, web development, and computer support were provided by James Carcone, Annie Gerard, Saleh Ghani, and Dave Strom, all at CIESIN.

Outside CIESIN, the following individuals have been very supportive of our efforts: NIEHS Superfund Research Program Director William Suk, SRP Program Administrator Danielle Carlin, SRP Program Analyst Beth Anderson, NIEHS Congressional Liaison Mary Gant, NIEHS MDB, Inc. contractors Maureen Avakian and Larry Reed, ATSDR Geographic Research, Analysis and Services Program (GRASP) Director Andrew Dent, and from EPA's Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology, Brette Beasley and Randy Hippen. A special thanks is given for our numerous beta testers.
