Carbon Tracker:

A joint initiative with AT&T, Nokia and UCLA to empower young people with actionable data to help them track their carbon footprints so they can better understand how changing commuting patterns can help reduce their environmental impact. Using a mobile application on a GPS enabled mobile phone, and high-speed wireless data network young people can track the carbon impact of their daily transportation choices. Based on time-location traces, the system can infer your activities (walking, biking, public transportation, and driving), and log them throughout the day. Like an instant daily personal carbon impact reminder, the Personal Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) allows you to monitor, and visualize the carbon impact of your transportation choices and behaviors. The application also has a Facebook component that when added to your Facebook profile, it allows you to compare and contrast your impact with friends.
