We are spending more than what nature can renew!


ESRI: Global Footprint Network investigates how much credit we have at the Earth. Available biocapacity or Earth’s bounty is like a bank account, which is recharged, for instance by sun-powered plant growth. Against this account, we—as individuals, as nations, and as a global community—are constantly making withdrawals.


According to these calculations, on a worldwide basis we’re spending more than what nature can renew. Explore a full-page version in original article for wour part of the world.

The digital-earth project

The digital-earth project | GIS, Spatial modelling & Plants | Scoop.it

The digital-earth.eu network fits into Digital Agenda for Europe and links innovative centres around Europe where geo-media use is well developed. Products, resources, experiences and ideas are shared between the centres and opened to the public wherever possible.

The digital-earth.eu project examines the use of geographic media in schools and teacher education. Geo-media is the visualisation of information from different media sources and is concerned with digital content and its processing based on place, position and location.

First digital-earth.eu conference took place from July 4-8, 2011 in Salzburg, Austria. A network of accredited national and regional experts acts as multipliers, working with teachers and educators in their own countries. Currently, digital-earth.eu has 76 partners in 22 countries. There are some national and European pilot projects, but large-scale implementation is so far lacking. As a result lobbying led to meetings between representatives of EUROGEO and ESRI-Europe and the office of Commissioner Kroes in March 2012. Members of the digital-earth.eu project were invited to present a pilot project to the Commission for consideration. A follow up is planned.
