Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program (BenMAP)

BenMAP 4.0

BenMAP 4.0 (January 2013)

This is the legacy version of the BenMAP software. BenMAP v4.0.66 was used for the 2012 PM NAAQS Regulatory Impact Analysis. Both BenMAP v4.0.66 and the current version contain 2010 census data and address a number of bugs. Note that current versions of the configuration and aggregation, pooling and valuation files are not bundled in the installation package and may be downloaded below. Version 4.0.67 is a minor update from v4.0.66 (December 2012), with the only change being the inclusion of the CMAQ 36km grid definition.

BenMAP Command Line

This scripting tool is useful to analysts who would like to execute a large number of BenMAP runs in succession. Users can define separate scripts for each stage of a BenMAP analysis, including: the creation of air quality grids, the running of the configuration stage, the running of the aggregation, pooling and valuation stage and exporting of results. Included in the download are example scripts. This program must be run through the MS-DOS command prompt. BenMAP Command Line is also bundled in the BenMAP installation package above.

Configuration Files for BenMAP v4.0 (not compatible with BenMAP-CE)

Users can save their health impact analysis options within BenMAP configuration (.cfg) and aggregation, pooling and valuation (.apv) files. Below we provide files that specify the current U.S. EPA-default options for PM, ozone, NO2 and SO2 health impact assessments.  The zip file below contains the cfg and apv files for all of the pollutants.
