Description

This data set provides spatial data products with identified and classified locations of potential methane (CH4) emitting facilities and infrastructure in the South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB). These data products form a GIS-based mapping database designed to address shortcomings in current urban CH4 source inventories and is known as Vista Los Angeles (Vista-LA). SoCAB is the air shed for the greater Los Angeles urban area, which includes urbanized portions of the Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties, California, USA. Vista-LA consists of detailed spatial maps for facilities and infrastructure in the SoCAB that are known or expected sources of CH4 emissions and illustrates the spatial distribution of potential CH4 sources, representing a first step towards developing an urban-scale CH4 emissions gridded inventory for the SoCAB. Vista-LA spatial data sets were created utilizing an assortment of publicly available data sources from local, state, and federal agencies for the years 2012 to 2017. The final Vista-LA database contains over 33,000 entries, which are presented as thirteen CH4 emitting infrastructure maps.
