Duties and Duties
The United Nations Setting Programme (UNEP) is the main international environmental authority that units the worldwide environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable growth throughout the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the worldwide surroundings. UN Setting’s mandate is to coordinate the event of environmental coverage consensus by retaining the worldwide surroundings beneath overview and bringing rising points to the eye of governments and the worldwide group for motion. UNEP’s Worldwide Methane Observatory (IMEO), throughout the Local weather Change Division, exists to ship enchancment throughout analysis, reporting and regulation and connecting this data to the people who’ve company to scale back methane emissions. Launched at COP28 in late 2023, the IMEO Methane Knowledge Platform focuses initially on emissions from the fossil trade. It reconciles methane information from scientific measurement research, satellites by the Methane Alert and Response System (MARS), rigorous trade reporting by the Oil and Fuel Methane Partnership 2.0 (OGMP 2.0), and nationwide inventories. The Public going through platform would require an accessible, easy-to-understand geospatial information visualization that may: – Combine numerous information streams to indicate aggregated methane information in an approachable method – Make sure the geo-spatial and two-dimensional information vizualisations demonstrates the IMEO narrative on integrating a number of streams of knowledge, together with location, reporting information, science research and satellite tv for pc imagery to mirror essentially the most dependable, scientific, and actionable information for these with company to behave on methane emissions. – Develop one geospatial view with doubtlessly personalized views for energy customers resembling governments and corporations. Develop 2D representations of knowledge as required. There can be a robust requirement to work carefully with the UX designer. Whereas the Geo-spatial Knowledge Vizualization Guide can be resposible for the visualizing the info, each when it comes to the map, but additionally second illustration, particularly the way it appears, the way it behaves, how the info is fed, front-end growth of these components, the UX designer can be liable for the product that encapsulates the map; the IA, the UI, the general finish to finish expertise.
{Qualifications}/particular expertise
A minimum of 10 years of expertise engaged on environmental information initiatives or geospatial information visualizations, dealing with each design, code and related API is required.
English and French are the working languages of the United Nations Secretariat. For this place fluency in English is required
Further Info
a. Overarching Goals 1. Visualization Improvement Design and develop an interactive geo-spatial information visualization platform for International Methane Emissions. This platform ought to function an actionable instrument for energy customers (governments, firms) and an academic instrument for the general public. Consideration for personalisation per energy phase is recommended. The person can be required to collaborate carefully collaboration with the general platform UX/UI designer, guaranteeing consistency in appear and feel in addition to person journey and expertise. 2. Scalable and Adaptable Platform Make sure the platform’s information visualization and expertise design are scalable and adaptable to match the evolving wants of various person segments, incorporating developments in information, expertise, and person suggestions. 3. Knowledge Accessibility Make complicated methane emission information accessible, integrating numerous information streams right into a user-friendly interface that simplifies information exploration and interpretation. 4. Integration with Present UNEP Knowledge Techniques Improve the platform’s utility inside UNEP’s environmental monitoring framework by guaranteeing integration with present UNEP information programs for correct information illustration. The person can be required to work carefully with the UNEP Knowledge and dev groups to ship on product. 5. Documentation Present complete documentation to help builders and inside groups in understanding and dealing with the platform. 6. Knowledge Visualization Product Refinement Repeatedly refine the info visualization part primarily based on suggestions from the event group. b. Output expectations 1. Figma Design Supply Ship the geo-spatial information visualization design in Figma, aligning with the platform’s general design technique. 2. Prototype Improvement Ship a functioning prototype that integrates with the UNEP technical stack. 3. Beta Launch Integration and Supply Make sure the platform is prepared for beta launch, integrating all mandatory elements. 4. Steady Refinement Make refinements and enhancements as wanted all through the consultancy interval. 5. Expertise Deliverables should be built-in within the IMEO internet utility The expertise stack utilized by such utility relies on React, Javascript, Python and Postgresql.
