Abstract

A comprehensive, nationwide assessment of whole municipalities in Japan was conducted using the Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency (CASBEE) tool specifically designed for citylevelassessment (CASBEE-City).As with other tools in the CASBEE family, CASBEE-City is also based on the concept of environmental efficiencyand calculates the value for built environment efficiency (BEE). In this study, BEE is calculated by usingpublic statistical information and visually displayed on amap through a geographic information system(GIS)to understand the current situation of all municipalities in Japanunderthe same assessmentcriteria(same assessment items, thresholdsand rating functions).
