Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate is the data?

The data is accurate enough to support decision making to reduce emissions in your region. Snapshot is generated from a combination of state level and local activity data on greenhouse gas emissions and emissions sources and will accurately identify the largest emissions sectors so that you can build awareness, advocate for next steps and target your activities.

The Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Inventories (GPC) outlines accounting and reporting principles in an ordered hierarchy. Snapshot has been designed to follow these guiding principles when selecting, and modelling data for profiles.

This Snapshot team will continue to seek out sources of GPC compliant activity data for incorporation into future iterations. Please refer to the methodology document for more information.
