Charting ‘Tentacles’ of Bioregional Food Production: Mapping the Energy-­‐Proximity of Food Sources to Oxford

An approximation of Carbon Emissions produced by lorry transport of good to Oxford, assuming equal CO2 per tonne of goods transported across the network, mapped using GIS software.
An approximation of Carbon Emissions produced by rail transport of good to Oxford, assuming equal CO2 per tonne of goods transported across the network, mapped using GIS software.

Please contact me if you would like to read the full study report produced as part of my MSc, which looks at the historical growth of transportation networks supplying Oxford with food and evaluates the Carbon Intensity of its current food supply methods.
