This project entailed a meticulous examination of the relationship between urban sprawl and methane emissions, leveraging data from ESRI, Google Earth, NASA, and EPA. Through multilayer geospatial visualizations and predictive analysis, we illustrated methane level increases in Los Angeles from 2000 to 2015, shedding light on urban sprawl's environmental impact.
