My Place History is a way to link public health information with personal environmental experience. Using geomedicine -- a more modern framework for bringing everyday information into the physician/patient relationship -- Esri allows you to achieve a greater understanding of how local environments affect health.
As more and more Americans move each year, the need for detailed information about our personal environments grows. My Place History is a new tool that links your personal place history to several governmental databases, including the Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Institute of Health's known chemical database. Both of these databases have been in the public domain since the late 1980s.
Using U.S. street addresses to create and maintain a personal place history, My Place History allows you to gather general information about the distance (or proximity) to certain specific events, hazards or exposures and unlock a wealth of geographically relevant health information. Users are encouraged to review more detailed documentation at the EPA (www.usepa.gov/TRI) and National Institute of Health Toxmap (www.nlm.com/nih/toxmap) websites.
Future versions of My Place History will include additional databases, like water quality, school performance, crime, lead contamination, cancer, mortality and poverty. As more public health data is made accessible, we hope that you will use My Place History to engage in an on-going process of self-discovery.

Awesome concept. App doesn't work right
The concept behind this app is great! I have issue with the fact that I can only get it to find information about one place. If I try to do a search, I get a message asking me what location with no options to choose. When I try to input another location and store it, I get the same message. I'm very glad I didn't pay for this app or I would be very angry. Fix it please.
Not well supported. Poor user interface. Not intuitive. I am not sure if any development continues for this product. Very little activity.
Same problem as others have mentioned. It won't let me add multiple locations. Dad because I really like the idea of it.
