Environmental Impact Briefing is a configuration of the Story Map Journal application that can be used by natural resource staff to communicate the impact of a development project on the natural environment. Agencies can use Environmental Analysis to conduct a detailed environmental impact assessment and create maps that show the impact of a proposed project on natural resources.
