Regionalized impact assessment

In openLCA 1.5 it is now possible to handle GIS data, allowing the user to include this type of data in the process locations, as well as for defining site-specific impact factors in the method (using parametrization) and therefore making a regionalized impact assessment possible. This does not mean, however, that there is a prepared regionalized impact assessment method available, but openLCA offers the possibility to create one.

A KML editor can be used to manually define new locations, but geographic data can also be imported in KML or EcoSpold2 format.
