Using data from the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, I mapped greenhouse gas emissions for buildings in New York City. As stated in the data dictionary for the dataset, “The total direct and indirect greenhouse gases emitted due to energy used by the property, reported in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e). The carbon coefficient is based on New York City’s EPA Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) sub-region.” The user can toggle to see properties color coded based on total GHG emissions or GHG emissions per square foot.
