Abstract

The need for both global and regional assessment of water consumption has been increasing. This paper aimed to understand industrial water consumption both globally and regionally, and create the 1°*1° global map. From the analysis of data in Japan and China, it was determined that industrial water consumption correlated well with urban area which can obtain from GIS data. Based on this knowledge, industrial water consumption was distributed to the 1°*1° global map, and this calculation was named urban area model.
