Replicate our methodology, easily.


In the second phase of the GBDX for sustainability challenge…

we created a scalable and comprehensive index to measure the quality of urban green space. We also developed a dashboard to make insights actionable. These key performance indicators, scoring mechanisms, and the rationales at their foundation, can be accessed by anyone through our website. This urban green classification index provides the basis on which our tool has been built. We are delivering a streamlined, open-source python tool package alongside a flat datafile so that technical as well as non-technical audiences can use our results and replicate our methodology. Notebook versions of our project are published on the GBDX platform for easy access to our toolbox, but for more advanced users our GitHub repository allows access to the source code of our tools and our dashboard.
