This dataset contains the data and code used for a paper currently being peer reviewed, titled "Spatial optimization of circular timber hubs". For this research, we identified the optimal location and scale of circular construction hubs in Amsterdam using a spatial simulated annealing as an optimization algorithm. The zipped file contains two folders, "code" and "data". The "code" folder contains:

  • - python script for calculating the cost effectiveness (euros / tCO2eq reduction) of a given configuration of circular construction hubs.
  • spatialAnnealing_parallel_hpc.R - R script for running the spatial simulated annealing algorithm on a high performance computing cluster.
  • resultsVisualization_v2.ipynb - a jupyter notebook visualizing the results of the research.

The "data" folder contains:

  • ams_edges.shp - shp file of major street network in Amsterdam.
  • candiHubs_ams.shp - shp file of potential locations for circular construction hubs
  • matGrid_ams.shp - shp file showing the predicted future supply and demand for timber (for construction) in Amsterdam. This shpfile was modified from a dataset created by the Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving and researchers from Leiden University, see their publication here:
