About GEO

GEO is a set of free interactive databases and tools built collaboratively by people like you


GOAL: to promote an understanding, on a global scale, of the dynamics of change in energy systems, quantify emissions and their impacts, and accelerate the transition to carbon-neutral, environmentally benign energy systems while providing affordable energy to all.


By providing easy to use and visualize data, models and analysis tools we aim to engage the public and the experts.


Data in GEO can be edited from anywhere in the world.


We invite collaborations to help build GEO.

Glossary of data fields in database of Fuels and Resources

Organization of this Glossary File for Structured/Formatted Data

This page defines the structured datafields used to characterize the 10 types of Fuel/Resources. It specifies

We first list all the fields that are common to many or all types of Fuel/Resources and then those specific to a given type of Fuel/Resource.


Datafields common to many/all of the 10 types of Fuels/Resources

IDENTIFIERS, LOCATION, AND DATAFIELDS

ASSOCIATED INFRASTRUCTURE [Table]

This module provides a way to cross-link individual units within and between categories. For example: to establish the network (coal mines, railway links, water resources and electric transmission grid) associated with a coal power plant please add appropriate entries to this table by following the menu. These units are then stored and cross-link the selected coal power plant, coal mines, railway links, water resources and electric transmission grid.

  1. Initiate adding a link by clicking on "Add AI" button
  2. Select from menu the category, type, country, state to see list of facilities already in GEO database. Clink on name of facility (if it exists in GEO) to add it as a cross-reference
  3. If infrastructure is not yet in GEO database, please add name and description in input box to serve as a reference
  4. All the placemarks, polylines and polygons defining the associated network are displayed on individual factsheets for these plants using an API to Google Maps
