Abstract

This project asks “what if we had a constantly updated assessment of our own personal impact on the environment?” It explores how models of environmental exposure and impact can be refined with GPS location data to show us the effects of lifestyle choices that we make every day—their contribution to the environment that we live in with our children, parents, and neighbors. This is the personal, real-time equivalent of government-mandated Environmental Impact Reports and Health Impact Assessments, which document the impact of construction and public works projects on our environment and health.
