About Us

In GeoNumbers we aim to enable you to find in one minute any common number in the field of environment, energy and sustainability that can be important for your research. Inspired by BioNumbers, Geonumbers was launched in March 2010. The BioNumbers database started in May 2007 by Ron Milo, Paul Jorgensen and Mike Springer while sharing a bay at the Systems Biology department in Harvard. .

GeoNumbers is coordinated and developed by Ron Milo at the Weizmann Institute in Israel . Feel free to write us a note at geonumb3r5@gmail.com.
The current database format was designed and implemented by Griffin Weber at Harvard. The full version was programmed by Zaztech and is currently developed by Proper Development .
The GeoNumbers logo was designed by Ricardo Vidal from the University of Algarve, Portugal and is further developed by Keren Katzav from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.

It is our hope that the database will facilitate quantitative analysis and reasoning in a field of research where numbers tend to be “soft” and difficult to vouch for. Financial as well as moral support for the effort is given by the Weizmann Institute.
