    The European Commission’s Open Data Science project created a tool that displays a map overlaid with air pollution data, potential natural vegetation sites, and locations suitable for placing solar, wind, or other energy systems. To deliver this information, the geo-harmonizer utilises Openlandmap.org combined with predictive analysis based on machine-learning methods. This tool highlights the Open Data Science project’s wider aim to encourage sharing of national data on an EU-wide basis.
