About EvaCvasustainable

EvaCvasustainableis a tool that visualizes the regional wealth from the aspect of sustainability using open data.“Eva” stands for “Evaluate”, “Cva” stands for “City Value”. Combining the above, EvaCvasustainable was named to “Find out and create values of regions.
It is necessary to control and utilize of regional capital that are sources of wealth for well-being in the future living. In EvaCvasustainable, the value on the municipal district town and village of the Inclusive Wealth Index (Natural Capital, Human Capital, Produced Capital) and the ecosystem services are displayed.

  • Calculating from statistical data disclosed by ministries and agencies in Japan, regional wealth of city, wards, towns or villages are graphed.
  • Multiple local governments in Japan can be selected out of the 1,742 governments. (Cities, wards, towns and villages as of April 1, 2014)
  • Radar charts and rankings by deviation value of indexes related Inclusive Wealth and ecosystem servises, can be displayed.
  • You can compare to all other local governments in Japan or to similar local governments (local governments of same population level).

※Radar charts display the T-scores of indexes. The T-score is scaled to have a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10. The maximum and minimum scores are 80 and 20, respectively, and are displayed as 0 if data is not available (missing value).
