At the Open Earth Foundation, we’re excited to introduce CityCatalyst, a platform aimed at supporting cities and regional governments in their journey towards decarbonization. In the face of global efforts to combat climate change, we have identified a critical challenge faced by many cities – the accurate preparation of greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories. CityCatalyst is designed to address this challenge head-on, providing cities with a powerful digital platform to manage their climate data and create comprehensive GHG inventories.
At OpenEarth we recently conducted user testing of our OpenClimate platform. In this blog post, we will discuss our testing methodology, the main results, the challenges users face when searching for climate information, and the conclusions we drew from the process.
