CARBON-FOOTPRINT ANALYSES FOR OPTIMAL PATH SELECTION :

By S. Balachander J. Manoj R. Prabhu T. Sathyesh CARBON-FOOTPRINT ANALYSES FOR OPTIMAL PATH SELECTION

Overview:

Overview Carbon footprint What is their need? Role of GIS Methodology Advantages Conclusion

What is Carbon Footprint?:

What is Carbon Footprint? the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product It is the “ Total set of Greenhouse Gas emissions” GHG Global Warming Potential CO 2 1 CH 4 21 N 2 O 310 HFC 140 – 11,700 PFC 6500 - 9200 SF 6 23900 Source: http://www.defra.gov.uk/environment/business

Need for Calculation?:

Need for Calculation? 23+11 = 34 % Source: http://www.choice.com.au/life-stage/green-living/carbon%20-%20climate%20change/going-carbon-neutral.aspx

What GIS can do ?:

What GIS can do ? Multimodal Public Transportation system. List of alternative possible mode and directions. Optimal mode of transport and route for reduced GHG emission Modeling BUS

Methodology:

Methodology

Benifits:

Benifits Health benefits Increased physical activity can result in reduced obesity , heart disease (including the lowering of high blood pressure), diabetes , osteoporosis and cancer . Reduced air pollution can lead to less respiratory disease, including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Environmental Benefits Changes in choices and technologies can reduce transport’s major contributions to global CO2 emissions, small particle air pollution, noise and injuries.

Conclusion:

Conclusion Preventing Global Climatic changes. Efficient management of resources. Effective motivation and persuasion to continue the actions or rules indefinitely. Can help to impose tax on the fares. Deciding the best possible modes of transport.
