This repository contains the scripts and data needed to build a consistent topology of the world (provinces, countries, and states), needed for the ecoinvent life cycle inventory database. It also includes the ability to define recipes to generate custom locations.
The repository is a mix of SQL, bash scripts, and Python. See the file "topology-journal.rst" for instructions and journal of what was done and why.
This repository is not the
constructive_geometries Python library! That one lives here.
The Python code is compatible with Python >= 3.4. It requires the following libraries:
Setting up the Postgresql database
Make sure you have a recent version of Postgresql and the Postgis extension installed, and then create the
createuser --superuser ecoinvent -U postgres
You are then ready to run the
create_db.sh script, which create the postgis-enable database and build all recipes.
Exporting selected geometries
Modify this command to get the names you want:
psql -U ecoinvent -d eigeo -c "COPY (SELECT uuid, name, shortname, ST_AsKML(geom) as geom, isotwolettercode, longitude, isothreelettercode, latitude FROM final WHERE name in ('foo', 'bar')) TO STDOUT WITH CSV;" > output/all.csv
