A video that presents a realistic and engaging visualization of the total carbon emissions and rate of carbon emissions in New York City.
Students will learn about the carbon footprint of New York City, based on data from 2010. They will also be introduced to an exploratory visual technique of representing numerical data for the general public.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- Compare New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions for 2014 with the greenhouse gas emissions for 2005 (Reference: Inventory of New York City Greenhouse Gas Emissions for 2014; https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/sustainability/downloads/pdf/publications/NYC_GHG_Inventory_2014.pdf).
- Design a visualization to represent the contribution of buildings in NYC to the total greenhouse gas emissions of the city for the year 2014 (Reference: Inventory of New York City Greenhouse Gas Emissions for 2014; https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/sustainability/downloads/pdf/publications/NYC_GHG_Inventory_2014.pdf).
