Licenses for the 2009 National Footprint Accounts are now available from Global Footprint Network. The licenses offer access the spreadsheets used to calculate the national-level Ecological Footprint and biological capacity of more than 240 countries and territories from 1961-2006.
In addition, Global Footprint Network is also presenting its data in a new format called a Consumption Land-use Matrix (CLUM). The CLUM breaks down the overall demand of a nation by activity categories (industrial sectors) in way that allows governments to analyze policy options and test Footprint-reduction scenarios. We now have developed CLUMs for 42 nations and are licensing them to partners. For more information about CLUMs, please contact Meredith Stechbart, Meredith@footprintnetwork.org
National Footprint Account licenses are available in formats to serve a number of purposes. They include:
• free Academic Editions for anyone interested in learning more about Footprint calcuations and data sets
• Project Edition for practitioners completing paid or commercial projects;
• Research Editions for academics, governments and agencies conducting research into the Accounts of a specific country; and
• Tools Editions for Footprint practitioners who will integrate data from the National Footprint Accounts into commercial tools for Footprint analysis.
Partners of Global Footprint Network receive a special free Partner Project Edition, which includes additional technical support and time-series data.
