The Common Platform has been developed for interested scientists, experts, and the general public. The goal is to present the data and the results of RAMSES in an attractive manner through different visualizations. Scientific target groups include various fields and levels of expertise. Interested laypeople are also welcome to use the platform to learn more about advancement in impact and adaptation science for cities.
