Visualizing Iowa’s Pesticide Use

Visualizing Iowa’s Pesticide Use (VizIPU), 1992-2018

The map below is a visualization that provides tools for the analysis of spatial and temporal trends for pesticide application across Iowa, 1992-2018. It was created by Monica McFadden, a PhD student at the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Iowa. The visualization was compiled from USGS county-by-county pesticide use estimates. Data were downloaded from the United States Geologic Survey (USGS) National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project website, cleaned and organized, then uploaded to Tableau proprietary software which was used to perform the visualization.
