The interactive dashboard shows 4 types of environmental footprints (carbon, fossil energy, land, and water) for different countries. This allows for comparisons between countries and across different footprint types.

  • On the top, the map displays the intensity of one type of footprint at a time, which can be selected under “Footprint Type”.
  • On the bottom, the bar charts for all four footprint types are shown, along with their respective breakdowns. Note that countries can be re-sorted from highest to lowest for each footprint type.
  • Both the “Footprint Measure” and “Country” drop down menus can be changed, influencing both the map and bar charts.
  • Links to the two relevant papers on Land Footprints and Carbon Footprints are located below the visualisation.
