Tools for Upload to SIMAP

These tools may be downloaded and used to asist with data collection and results validation. 

Food Data Collection Template

Please, use this tool to collect the food data. Once filled out, you will be able to upload this in the Import tab to populate the food data input. 

Campus Data Collection Template

The Campus Data Collection spreadsheet is a tool to help organizations collect their data day to day in one spreadsheet to help keep track of which input you have for the year. Once this is completed for the entire year, you can import all your data from this spreadsheet. This spreadsheet does not have any emission factors or calculations, all those take place in SIMAP. This is just to help you gather the numbers in one place. Do not forget to check the institutional data like budgets, population, and square footage and to update any changes in those year over year. Also, please, check your goals and any other notes or changes you should track for your data collection. Use notebook and notes fields in the data entry tab to track your assumptions. 

Tools for Reference

Nitrogen Footprint Tool

The Nitrogen Footprint Tool is an Excel-based tool for calculating the campus nitrogen footprint. Originally developed at the University of Virginia in 2009, this tool has been pilot tested by the Nitrogen Footprint Tool Network and its development was supported by an EPA Cooperative Agreement. For more information on the nitrogen footprint, see Nitrogen References and SIMAP User’s Guide. Please note that this tool cannot be uploaded directly to SIMAP and is made available here for demonstration purposes.

Please, suggest additional resources you think may help you and we can add them here.
