The Urban Environmental and Social Inclusion Index (UESI) aims to become an open tool for cities and other actors, with the objective to fill environmental data gap that exists in urban areas leveraging open source databases and large geospatial data.
The UESI has a streamlined process for capturing the data for environmental outcomes from several sources, but to begin we ask for the following:
1) A spatial outline of the city´s neighborhoods (GeoJSON or Shapefile format)
2) Recent population data for the city, broken down by neighborhood
3) Recent income per capita data in local currency (and/or US dollar), by neighborhood
We are constantly looking to add additional cities to the Urban Environment and Social Inclusion Index. Do you work in city government, or have access to data for your city? Get in touch with our team.
