Phosphorus management is complex. It involves understanding not just regulations but their context, including where the phosphorus comes from and where it ends up.

Recognizing this, the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance, working with industry and government partners, developed a freely available resource for phosphorus management data called GIS-P. Delivered via Esri’s online StoryMaps platform, GIS-P provides a map-based interface for users to browse, region-by-region, data pertinent to the land-application of biosolids and manure, including US federal and state regulations. We hope to expand this work into Canada in the near future.

GIS-P is a work in progress and will strive to encompass more dimensions of phosphorus management. You can help ensure this work stays up-to-date and relevant by becoming a member of the Alliance.
