You can help! We have embarked upon the time-consuming but very rewarding task of extracting urban metabolism figures from publications, in order to enable fellow researchers to more easily and quickly access these figures and save time in their work. Although we already have a lot of data, there is still lots more out there. Are you willing to help? Get in touch!
