For those of us concerned about the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline it can be frustrating trying to find detailed maps of the proposed routes, information critical for assessing potential impacts. Drawing on data obtained from a FOIA request, the Keystone Mapping Project http://keystone.steamingmules.com/ has assembled an excellent mapping tool based on Google Earth’s KML format.
Map layers include:
- Keystone XL Route
- Milepost Markers
- Waterbody Crossings
- Gas Well. Within 1 mile of KXL route
- Water Well. Within 1320 feet or 1 mile of KXL route
To view the highest resolution maps and interactive data, install the free Google Earth software and then download the Keystone Mapping Project’s KML file here. http://keystone.steamingmules.com/maps/google-earth-downloads/
