Metabolism of Cities
This website is an open source initiative launched in August 2014 as 'MFA Tools'. It was launched with the purpose of:
Making it easier to get an overview of the publications out there related to Material Flow Analysis.
Allowing researchers to easily (co-) create online Material Flow Analysis projects and share the underlying datasets.
In January 2016 the website was renamed to Metabolism of Cities, to reflect the broadening scope to other methodologies.
All code for this website is hosted on github and we invite programmers to help us improve the website and the online MFA software. But you don't need to be a programmer to help improve this website!
We need help identifying suitable studies, extracting relevant numbers, and presenting the data! We can use help in many forms, and would hereby like to invite anyone to join us.
Specific tasks we need your help with include:
Identification of useful research projects and other studies
Extraction of relevant data and entry into our system
Assistance with visualization of data
Programming work to integrate support of all aforementioned functionality on our website
Any other relevant task you can think of that enhances our project
