Cambridge Centre for Carbon Credits (4C)


In this workshop, Centre researcher Patrick Ferris will use open-source software to show how we can visualise environmental data in fun, engaging and interactive ways in order to understand it better.

Increasingly, councils and governments across the UK are making data about our local environments available through online platforms. But the data is often in forms that describe the information in raw detail – but don’t help people see the larger patterns and insights. The Cambridge Centre for Carbon Credits is working on a range of nature-based solutions to sequester carbon, combat deforestation and protect biodiversity. The Centre is co-run by the Departments of Computer Science and Technology, Zoology and Plant Sciences, and one of its big challenges is visualising environmental data in meaningful ways that can help us dig into and analyse the information and draw conclusions from it.
