How Many Planets – Measuring sustainability in urban plans with the Ecological Footprint.
Ecological and carbon footprint by consumption and income in GIS: down to a census village scale – To measure local sustainability, the ecological and carbon footprints are approximated in global hectares based on consumption and income in a geographic information system (GIS). Income correlates strongly with consumption when both are surveyed by Canadian national statistics at a large urban area scale.
