Transition indicators for cities

An open-data initiative

Welcome to the Transition Project, an initiative aimed at accelerating carbon abatement in cities globally through Open Data and Open Models.

Transition Elements models activity shifts across all sectors of a city.

The strict logic that separates physics from human behaviour enables measurability and balancing of resources across the transition. This helps to quantify and compare the benefits and costs of moving from high to low-carbon activities.

Each Transition Element is interconnected with other transition elements

The Transition Atlas provides a set menu of a city’s most significant activity shifts.


The Transition Project is an open data initiative by ClimateView. We welcome partners from all parts of society review and contribute to the project. If you are interested, please contact us at
