ℹ️
Please be aware that the significance of certain pillars may vary based on the specific geometry of the area in question, as this is an inherent characteristic of each pillar. We strongly recommend requesting the Sustainability Insights Add-On for areas with a significant population. This will guarantee that you obtain a detailed and insightful data set, customised to your unique requirements. We aim to avoid delivering low-quality data when the population is not sufficiently relevant.

To improve your comprehension of the Location Sustainability Insights Add-On, it's important to recognise that it comprises 17 proprietary indexes. Certain indexes are formulated by amalgamating others, creating a hierarchical framework, as you see in the scheme ⬇️
