Resource Intensity of Cities on Google Maps
Resource Intensity of Cities analyses data on material and energy use in 42 U.S. cities.
The application uses a Google Maps interface to allow users to select an area and visualise a heat map of population, material and energy. It is also possible to generate a downloadable PDF report for the selected area.
The PDF includes a Google Map of the searched area and a detailed breakdown of population and housing density, material intensity, material comparison, energy intensity and energy comparison.
