So, we want to ensure our system is better suited to cater to EW-MFA studies that have already been done. We have a programming task here. However, in order to figure out what format is best to present to our users, it would be very useful if we can have a variety of EW-MFA datasets already in our system (they do NOT need to be processed in any way... the idea is to add the meta data and attach the relevant files in their original format). These should be based on different types of sources (e.g. directly from Eurostat, some from journal articles, theses, ...).

Once this is in the system, we can have a good look to see how these datasets are generally structured and that way we ensure that our system takes existing work into account and we don't base it solely on whatever dataset we happen to have in front of us.

To get going, please upload the datasets to our Data Hub (go to the city, and upload it there). If the relevant city is not yet in our system then give us a shout and we will provide instructions on what to do. National data and island data is also most welcome.

General instructions

Online portal for national material flow data and state of the art visualisations and analyses hosted by Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna).

The website is based on the UN IRP Global Material Flows Database. Data and visualisations cover more than 200 countries, the time period of 1970 to 2017, and more than 300 different materials aggregated into 13 categories of material flows.
