Prospecting the Urban Mines of Amsterdam
View map on http://code.waag.org/puma.
Map showing all buildings in the Netherlands, shaded according to the estimated concentration of metals in residential buildings. with open data. This creates a map from the perspective of a future circular economy—because “Cities are the mines of the future” (Jane Jacobs). For each metal, two estimates are visualized. The minimum scenario shows the least amount of metal to be expected, while the maximum scenario shows the opposite.
Data and code
Code forked from Buildings Map. Step by step instruction to create your own map can be found there.
