This tool looks really cool but might be a little overwhelming for the average person to navigate and glean useful information.
Thanks for your comment and question! We agree that C-FERST may be difficult for the average user. We’re currently developing interactive training that we hope will improve C-FERST user-friendliness. EPA Region 10 beta-testing and pre-release testing of C-FERST with community partners suggest it may be mutually beneficial for community members and groups to work with regional, state or local environmental experts, and local academic institutions to learn more about their community, identify and explore local issues, and interpret C-FERST data and results. We’re always looking for ways to improve the tool and the tool’s public messaging. Please let us know if you have specific recommendations or suggested partners as we continue to improve the tool.
