I was wondering which code EMP between the ones in the list "Group 4 - Energy, materials and products", is it better to use when it comes to different infrastructures. For example when I had to process files containing the stock of buildings, or the stock of roads length, I used the code EMP3.1 Marble, granite, sandstone, porphyry, basalt, other ornamental or building stone (excluding slate). Is it correct ? What do you think would be better?
In annexe I show you a part of a table where I am processing data on land use. You can se in the first lines that I'am using this code EMP3.1 but I wanted your advice.
Another thing related to this table that I wanted to show you is the following. How you can see, I have segment defining specific data "industrial and artisanal land", "buildings land", etc. Then I have some sub-total, as "Housing and infrastructure land", "Agricultural land", "Wooded land", and so on. And finally the total land use in my territory.
In this case the problem is that Metabolism of Cities, when read the processed file, take everything as a segment that contain a data expressed in number and sums all togheter without distinction between the material code (different EMP) and the class of data (firsthand, sub-total, total). So, the final results are columns, chart, pie, etc. that consider toghether different kind of products and sum in the final total, some sub total already expressed giving wrong results.
You can see an exemple of what I mean here with energy and emissions. What would you recommend me to do ? To take away all totals and sub-totals ?
Thanks a lot!! :-)
