FEWSION is building the first complete empirical description of the U.S. food, energy, and water system so that every citizen and policymaker in the U.S. can see where their food, energy, and water come from, at the mesoscale of cities, counties, and watersheds. This dataset is now being made available to scientific researchers on a trial basis. Additional data layers will be added as they become available following peer-reviewed publication. An API and data server is in development for the purpose of releasing popular and highly utilized “slices” of the dataset as CSV files.
The FEWSION 1.0 dataset is in Beta release and many of its layers are currently undergoing peer review. “Beta” means that you use this system at your own risk, and no warranty or guarantee of accuracy is implied.
