What are indicators?

The information in the Environmental Data Compendium is presented in the form of indicators; raw measuring data summarised into relevant, useful information. Indicators show trends and spatial images, and compare these with, for example, policy targets and objectives, references, critical loads and benchmarks. Each indicator page features a concise key message, followed by scientific, policy and technical explanations.

The Environmental Data Compendium is a partnership of CBS, PBL, RIVM and WUR.
