Ecological footprint and biocapacity

Ecological footprint and biocapacity

Screenshot of interactive data visualization: ecological footprint and biocapacity

Much of the discussion on finite global resources has focused on the depletion of non-renewable resources, such as petroleum. It is increasingly evident that renewable resources, and the ecosystem services they provide, are also at great or even greater risk. Explore how the world uses renewable resources.

  • See the 2007 natural resource capacity and use and reserve/deficit,
  • switch views from person to nation or to a specific resource,
  • compare different countries to each other.

This interactive visualization is the result of my latest project. Check the live version and let me know your comments.

    Great work.

    I am studying community education at masters level in Edinburgh, Scotland.

    I was wondering where you are based and if you have leads to other applications and tools that can be used to allow people to easily/ visually teach themselves about environmental and/ or social problems.

    Thankyou very much for your time,

    John
