The most major of the changes performed on this upload has been the systematic enhancement of the Sample Maps section of the GIS Mapping Desktop branch. This section now contains sample thumbnails of maps as well as valuable metadata detailing where the information came and a history of modifications and corrections made to each map (where applicable) along with the map maker's notes. The PDF versions of the maps and related reference materials are still available for viewing and downloading by clicking on the image thumbnail. Added images requested for the Keeping Brownfields Clean Initiative page. Made a small addition to the Press Advisories section by adding an important press release regarding the Harlem Asthma study which confirms WE ACT's claim.

A number of additions and modifications were made, most based around the revisions to the Northern Manhattan Environmental Justice Coalition section. The revisions included adding information about New York City's Waste Disposal Problem (this page has a textually in-line ) and a companion description page about the implementation for these temporal models. Some of the original Department of Sanitation (DOS) PDF documents regarding the Marine Transfer Station Conversion Plan are now archived on this website since they do not appear to be available from the DOS website (A full archive of all of the documents exists on CD-ROM at the WEACT office). Included a photo caption page for the photo of the Cornell University students which is located on the GIS Mapping Desktop section. This GIS section now also contains a division that lists every available for the Temporal Information System (TIS).

Established a new feature that predicts the asthma admissions cases for the current year given the history of previous year. This Asthma Hospital Admissions Trend Model displays information for individuals of all ages in designated areas of New York City. In the future, as the prediction algorithm becomes more complex, information for all ZIP codes in New York City will be tallied and displayed in order to provide a better contrast. Be sure to read the DISCLAIMER on the data model.
