The aim of this paper is to visualize selected metal pollutant geographic distributions, and to summarize their covariations. Using Syracuse, NY, as a landscape laboratory, fieldwork-based research findings are summarized here that help clarify the importance of metal pollution risks. This study lies at the interface between environmental health, urban geochemistry, and historical geography/spatial statistics
