To get quick and reliable information about the current load of pollutants caused by different kind of sources, like point (industry), line (traffic) or area (agriculture) emission inventories are an adequate tool. The below discussed system will show an emission inventory system installed for the federal province Upper Austria which integrates data from several different data sources.
