EJ focuses on equal access to a healthy environment for vulnerable communities. Due to the complex definition of EJ, locating communities with EJ issues is rarely easy, particularly for a large area like Seoul.

It identifies communities with EJ issues in Seoul employing spatial cluster analysis and spatial data like land use, demography, and air quality.
