Project Title: Carbon Footprint and Emissions Analysis


The Government and University has made a commitment to decreasing our carbon footprint. This requires the University, staff, and students to be responsible for our current emissions and decrease them every year. You can't manage something unless you measure it. This project is to develop a web site or mobile app to help measure individual carbon footprint or emissions from buses. This includes transportation, use of facilities, and potentially personal use.


The primary users of this system are university staff, students, and regional council staff who make decisions on transport infrastructure. This will require interviewing staff/students and potentially council staff about what they think is important for managing carbon footprint and emissions. This will require a discussion of privacy and access controls.
