The goal of this project is to develop an efficient system for the Environment Department of Boston to acquire re-usable knowledge from Environmental Impact Reports (EIRS) and to make the information readily accessible for municipal processes. The team will use existing data from current EIRs to help the Boston Environment Department develop a system to manage EIR content. A standardized format for future EIR submissions will benefit city officials and members of the private industry.
