Script to Compile iWitness Pollution Reports to GeoJSON

This Node script scrapes the RSS feed for the Louisiana Bucket Brigade’s iWitness Pollution Map and compiles the incidents into a single GeoJSON string. The scraped incidents are limited to the “River Parishes” of Jefferson, St. Charles, St. John, and St. James. These are among the most heavily industrialized parishes in the state.

You can fork the repo here. To scrape incidents currently in the feed, run “node compile_incidents” from the root directory.
