The EmberFactory   ▶ Start app

The purpose of this application is to (re)produce burning ember diagrams of the style used in IPCC reports. The Ember Factory takes standardised Excel sheets describing color transitions as input. It produces quality figures in PDF format, editable with vector-drawing software if needed. Excel sheets may include a set of parameters describing the layout of figures so as to minimise the need for editing.


There is no planned maintenance.

Other applications

There are two applications in development. News should come before the end of 2023. One of these apps may help assessing risk for new embers. For information, see e-mail at the bottom of this page.

The "ember drawing" part of the EmberFactory will become available as a separate library/API, as shown here (development) and here (distribution).

About this website

This website was created to host application(s) related to climate change research in an independent way with limited burden and without user-tracking by commercial platforms. If you need to host such an application and look for a server, you may contact philippe.marbaix@uclouvain.be for possible cooperation. Some information on how the current app works is provided here.
